    United States describes Nicaragua's civil unrest a threat to the region's security

     “When human rights are denied, the violence and instability that follow spill over borders,” US ambassador Nikki Haley said, comparing Nicaragua to Venezuela

    United States declared Nicaragua’s civil unrest a threat to the region’s security, saying government repression of protests risked creating an overwhelming displacement of people akin to Venezuela or Syria.
