Nicaragua Reporter Shot Dead During Live Broadcast Amid Anti-Government Protests

A journalist in Nicaragua has been shot dead while doing a live broadcast about anti-government protests.

Ángel Gahona was reporting on damage at a bank in the Caribbean coast town of Bluefields when a bullet hit him during his Facebook Live newscast.

Video footage shows him falling to the ground and bleeding.

More than 10 people have died in days of protests against pension changes approved by the government of President Daniel Ortega on Wednesday.

The move increased pension contributions for workers and employers and reduced overall benefits by 5%.

Mr Ortega has offered talks but protest leaders have refused, saying police violence must stop first.

Government buildings have been damaged or set on fire, and troops have been deployed in several cities.
