Reports from Nicaragua say authorities have arrested two more potential Presidential challenges to veteran leader Daniel Ortega in elections later this year.
Felix Maradiaga and Juan Sebastian Chamorro have been accused of terrorism and plotting against Nicaragua’s sovereignty and independence.
They were however held under a controversial new security law passed in December by Mr Ortegas government.
Two other opposition leaders have been arrested in recent days.
