At least eight killed in Nicaragua unrest: police

Managua (AFP) – At least eight people were killed Saturday in Managua, police sources said, raising to 178 the number of deaths in anti-government unrest that began two months ago in Nicaragua. 

Six of those killed were members of one family whose home was burned down after a group of hooded armed men threw a Molotov cocktail, while the other two victims were attacked while clearing road barricades, police said in a statement.
