#BIGPICTURE: Deadly protests erupt in Nicaragua


Protestors walk through burning tires in Managua, the capital of Nicaragua. People there are taking to the streets in one of the country's largest uprisings in decades, after President Ortega announced an overhaul of the country's social security system. The protests have been deadly, at least two dozen people killed so far. Now, Ortega says he's backing off his pledge, but the protests are unlikely to stop.
