In Nicaragua, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights has condemned the Nicaraguan government’s bloody crackdown against protesters last month. The commission said at least 76 people have been killed since mid-April, when mass demonstrations broke out in response to a proposed rollback of social security benefits. The protests, and the government’s bloody repression, mark the biggest crisis in leftist President Daniel Ortega’s 11 years in power.
