At least nine people were wounded at the ‘March of the Flowers’ demonstration on June 30, in Managua, Nicaragua, after it was reported that shots were fired at the crowds. The demonstration was meant to honor the children that have been killed in the recent Nicaragua protests demanding the resignation of President Daniel Ortega, which began on April 18. The demonstration was originally meant to be held on June 23, but the date was later changed due to safety concerns, according to reports. Credit: Letty Gaitan via Storyful
