The Cenidh said it is investigating possible deaths in recent days. Of the 285 deaths reported by ANPDH, 262 have been identified and registered by the agency with name, date, place and cause of death.

According to the report, most of the victims are young people who died from bullet wounds to the head and thorax in the capital city of Managua and Masaya.

Masay, 30 km south of the capital, is under a permanent threat of bloodshed and has been heavily punished by government repression.
