RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - In a new blow against freedom of expression in Nicaragua, the security forces of Daniel Ortega's regime are surrounding the editorial offices of El Confidencial newspaper.
"We demand respect for our journalists. We reject a new threat of seizure and confiscation. They will not silence us. We will continue to do journalism," warned Carlos Chamorro, director of the media outlet, on his social networks.
He added: "Thank you for your solidarity. Our offices are surrounded by riot troops. We demand respect for the physical integrity of our colleagues. We demand the withdrawal of the police . . .
