Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Opponents of a Chinese company's planned interoceanic canal across Nicaragua say police have set up roadblocks and are harassing demonstrators heading to a Wednesday protest in the nation's capital.

The National Council in Defense of the Land, Lake and Sovereignty says police have threatened drivers, seized vehicles and roughed up opponents.
