Protesters who call themselves “peaceful,” have attacked and burned public radio stations, Tu Nueva Radio Ya and Radio Nicaragua.

A new baseball stadium, the Dennis Martinez National Baseball Stadium, was also attacked with mortars and fire. Several other buildings, including a credit union and cars parked at it have been attacked as well.

Earlier on Wednesday, violent groups attacked a caravan of government supporters traveling to Managua to attend the Mother's Day rally held by President Daniel Ortega, killing one and injuring 27 others.

Protests calling for the removal of President Daniel Ortega have been ongoing since April.
