Nicaragua arson attack kills six members of the same family


Nicaragua has been through huge upheaval this year. In April, anti-government protesters demanded the socialist president, Daniel Ortega, step down over unpopular pension reforms. However, he refused to negotiate and instead sent in the security forces.

Hundreds were killed in the space of weeks. Among them was Cinthia’s family, who died in an arson attack.

She narrowly escaped the fire and says pro-government paramilitary groups are responsible.

The BBC’s Will Grant spoke to Cinthia, who is now in hiding fearing for her safety, and members of one of those underground armed groups.
