According to the report, most of the victims are young people who died from bullet wounds to the head and thorax in the capital city of Managua and Masaya.

Masay, 30 km south of the capital, is under a permanent threat of bloodshed and has been heavily punished by government repression.

In June alone at least 120 deaths have occurred, coinciding with the appearance, at the end of May, of groups of armed civilians participating in intimidations and shootings with the National Police against demonstrators.
