Nicaragua police under threat for criticizing deadly crackdown

Nicaragua has been in turmoil for the last five months, with nearly 300 people killed and more than 2,000 wounded by government forces as they violently repressed protests.

The police and military have been widely accused of using excessive force against protesters.

Some former police officers have spoken out against the government crackdown, putting themselves at risk.
