Managua (AFP) – Nicaragua’s government agreed on Wednesday to release opposition prisoners within 90 days in order to restart stalled peace talks aimed at ending an 11-month political crisis, a dialogue mediator said.

Organization of American States special envoy Luis Angel Rosadilla said in a press conference that President Daniel Ortega’s government had agreed to release “all the people detained in the context of the protests” that began in April last year and left more than 700 people behind bars and 325 dead.
