    Massive peaceful turnout in Nicaragua, with a month mediation of the Church

    The rally took place just hours after university students at the forefront of anti-government unrest issued conditions for talks with President Daniel Ortega.

    Thousands of Nicaraguans marched peacefully through the capital Managua on Saturday in a mass demonstration to demand justice following the violent suppression of a wave of protests that left at least 43 people dead. During the rally, which was called by the Catholic church, Managua's bishop issued a deadline of one month to see if there was a serious intention to achieve change through a national dialogue aimed at resolving issues that triggered the country's worst unrest in 11 years.
