Death toll in Nicaragua protests rises to 42

The death toll in protests against the Nicaraguan government of Daniel Ortega has risen to 42, while it has been confirmed that many young people feel forced to move away from their homes, the Nicaraguan Center of Human Rights (CENIDH) reported Saturday.

"We have confirmed 42 dead and have not yet determined the status of three others," CENIDH member Meyling Sierra told EFE.

Though other defenders of human rights have reported up to 63 deaths, based on official and non-official lists, CENIDH figures are more conservative since they include none whose bodies have not been identified by their families or otherwise verified.

CENIDH warns, however that even its own number of 48 has been made more uncertain due to the "forced relocation," considered a grave violation of human rights, since those who feel they are in danger must leave the city or even the country.
