A report from Nicaragua indicates eight LGBTI people have been killed during anti-government protests that began in the Central American country last April. The report notes a gay man was one of three people who were killed on April 19, 2018, the day after protests against the government of President Daniel Ortega and his wife, Vice President Rosario Murillo, began. The report says a total of seven gay men and a lesbian woman were reported killed in Managua and Carazo departments between April 18, 2018, and Jan. 31, 2019. The report indicates five of these murders “were committed during the protests” and the bodies of three of the victims were found “many days after they disappeared.”
