Costa Rican authorities said they would continue the strict controls on this side of the border to impede the illegal crossing, to and from Nicaragua, during the national emergency.

On Wednesday, the Nicaraguan Army said it had deployed soldiers along the border to close the “blind spots” that allow the crossing of the border between the two countries.
