Nicaragua Media Under Major Assault

The press in Nicaragua is under sustained assault by the embattled government of Daniel Ortega. Also targeted are human rights and watchdog NGOs. The regime has now banned nine NGOs, including GIJN member El Centro de Investigación de la Comunicación, (CINCO), arrested and beaten journalists, shut down a popular TV station and expelled international human rights observers.
