Nicaragua President Refuses Protest Demands To Step Down

Nicaragua’s President Daniel Ortega has refused to bow to protesters’ demands that he step down. He said in an interview on Fox News, the deaths of about 300 people during three months of protests were caused by paramilitary groups. He also said the groups behind the violence were funded by opposition MPs and drug cartels but provided no evidence of the alleged links. Human rights groups say armed groups loyal to the state are responsible.
