    Background: Nicaraguan is best with unrest. The left-wing Sandinista government is fighting off attempts by right-wing gunmen trying to overthrow the Revolutionary Leadership, and there are allegations of a United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) covert operation to topple the government. At a daily pace of around 40, Nicaraguan refugees are crossing the border to seek political asylum in Honduras. These people at a refugee camp in Danli, Honduras, say the Sandinistas forced them to leave their house and belongings. To reach safety they had to avoid border patrols and skirmishes between Honduran rebels and the Sandinista counter-forces. Aid from Relief has not been forthcoming, these people are accommodated in appalling conditions in temporary refugee camps. This house within the Danli camp is so crowded, some adults and children have only the floor on which to eat and sleep.
