Four other opposition leaders are arrested in Nicaragua.
With this, there are already 12 opposition leaders who have been arrested in less than two weeks.
Among those arrested is retired general Hugo Torres Jiménez, a militant of the Sandinista Renovation Movement, who spoke before his arrest.
Torres Jiménez says that Daniel Ortega's regime is not legal, but that the struggle they are leading is.
Several international organizations have called for the immediate release of the opponents.
