Managua: Nicaragua’s Ro­man

Catholic bish­ops said yes­ter­day they would me­di­ate a new round of talks this week be­tween the Gov­ern­ment and civil so­ci­ety groups fol­low­ing deadly protests against Pres­i­dent Daniel Ortega.

Anti­Gov­ern­ment protests be­gan in mid­April af­ter a con­tro­ver­sial so­cial se­cu­rity over­haul. The demon­stra­tions quickly snow­balled into the big­gest cri­sis Ortega has faced in his 10 years as pres­i­dent.

At least 147 peo­ple have been killed, most of them stu­dents. — Reuters
