Nicaraguan Police Accuse Protesters of Violent Acts

MANAGUA – Nicaraguan police accused on Sunday demonstrators summoned by the Civic Alliance movement of carrying out violent acts, injuring an agent, and burning a police vehicle in a protest against the president of Nicaragua in Managua.

According to the Nicaraguan police, “the self-named Civic Alliance convened an alleged peaceful march,” in which “groups of hooded men participated, launching mortars and Molotov cocktails, in vans without license plates.”

The demonstration, convened by students of the National Autonomous University of Nicaragua (UNAN-Managua), saw vehicles of the ruling Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) obstructing the passage of the protesters through a downtown area of Managua.

The police, however, did not include in their report that minutes earlier a group of hooded civilians, who were traveling on unregistered buses with the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) flags, attacked the demonstrators and shot and wounded one person.

According to demonstrators who supported their testimonies with videos and photographs, only one driver in plain clothes was driving in police car that was later set alight, who abandoned the vehicle in the street after the shots were fired.
