Since Nicaragua’s political crisis began more than a year and a half ago, more than 300 journalists have reported some type of aggression by state officials.  That’s according to a report by Nicaragua’s “Violeta Chamorro Foundation,” which advocates for freedom of expression. Some women say their safety is especially at risk because of their work as journalists.  Daliana Ocaña has more from Managua, Nicaragua, in this report narrated by Cristina Caicedo Smit.
