Protest at Embassy Managua

Apparently about 500 Nicaraguan Army soldiers and supporters are demonstrating in front of the American Embassy in Managua urging a halt in aid to anti- Sandinista guerrillas. Protestors have lobbed some small, improvised mortars and there is some minor damage to the compound from that and vandalism.

So far, there are no reports of any injuries to Embassy staff. I hope it continues to stay that way. This is just another reminder that Foreign Service work is dangerous no matter where you serve.

Stay safe folks. Our thoughts are with you.
