Nicaragua once again blocks canal protest

Monday, April 24, 2017

The Nicaraguan government has once again blocked a planned protest by opponents of a Chinese company's project to build an interoceanic canal across Nicaragua.

The country's National Police force said in a statement Saturday that the protesters were disturbing the peace.

A lawyer for the farm groups organizing the weekend protest in the central town of Juigalpa said at least one person was wounded.
