Fifty-six activists who led anti-government protests in Nicaragua have been released from prison. The move comes just days after Congress passed a controversial amnesty law BBC said. Opposition groups say the amnesty law will make it impossible to bring those who committed human rights abuses to justice. The 56 activists released on Tuesday are not the first to be freed by the government. On Monday, 50 rank-and-file protesters were let go from prison and there have been other releases even before the amnesty law was passed on Saturday.
