Trump signs bill to sanction Nicaraguan government

President Donald Trump signs into law a bill to sanction the government of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega over the expulsion of experts investigating allegations of human rights abuses

Trump signed the bill a day after Nicaragua announced that it was expelling international experts investigating allegations of human rights abuses by security forces during anti-government protests earlier this year. The demonstrators had demanded President Daniel Ortega leave office.

More than 320 people were killed in those demonstrations.
