The security officials say that various organized groups – armed with firearms, mortar shells and Molotov cocktails – have been committing “acts of terrorism” against Nicaraguans.

The statement detailed multiple incidents of violence, spreading across Managua, Masaya, Jinotega, Matagalpa and Leon, resulting in kidnappings, several deaths and injuries as well as the destruction of private and government property.

The release said members of the Los Frijoleros gang turned guns on each other in Managua, while one man was shot dead, a cafe set on fire and several police officers received injuries in Masaya. A number of vehicles and properties were said to be extensively damaged, and many people injured and or kidnapped in Jinotega, the statement further added.
