2./ PAIN: The rebellion of the Sandinista's grandchildren

The government of Nicaragua has not made an official count of victims in the protests. The Nicaraguan Center for Human Rights (Cenidh), an independent body, has confirmed more than 50 dead and hundreds of wounded, in addition to an indeterminate number of detainees and disappeared. Beyond the numbers, the protests leave a lot of pain, especially in the families of the deceased. Javier Bauluz attended the wake of Nelson Téllez, 35, who was buried May 2 in Ciudad Sandino, and Kevin Ávila, 23, buried May 7 in Managua.
