Jinotepe, a picturesque town south of the Nicaraguan capital, turned into a war zone on Tuesday amid protests against the government of Daniel Ortega.

The empty streets were blocked by barricades made of stones to cover the bursts of shots.

A total of 146 people have been killed in the socio-political crisis in Nicaragua as of Monday, according to the Nicaraguan Center for Human Rights (Cenidh).

The protests against Ortega began on April 18 for failed social security reforms and escalated into protests for his resignation after 11 years in power marred with accusations of abuse and corruption.
