    Nicarguan army sides with protests, calls for an end to violence

    The protests have expanded to at least eight departments, including clashes over the weekend between protesters, police and pro-government civilian groups.

    Nicaragua's military called for a halt to violence that has rocked the country during weeks of protests and a deadly crackdown by police and supporters of President Daniel Ortega's government. In a statement late Saturday, the army also expressed solidarity with families of those who have died — more than 60, according to a human rights group.
