Mexico is advising its citizens in Nicaragua to stay in touch with the embassy in case they are detained following the arrest of four young Mexicans over the weekend.
Mexico’s foreign affairs ministry said Monday through its website that Mexicans who suspect they are under investigation and could be arrested should immediately call the embassy’s emergency number.
Four Mexicans were among six foreigners arrested in Nicaragua this weekend on allegations of having unauthorized explosives.
Mexican Julieta Gimenez Cacho says her son Daniel Espinosa Gimenez Cacho is one of those arrested. He was part of a caravan conducting workshops in the region about ecological projects in poor communities.
His mother says that on Saturday they were doing a workshop in Nueva Guinea when a resident accidentally triggered an explosion.
