  • Description

    SYNOPSIS: Costa Rican customs officers searched their belonging and civilian guards checked all trucks and cars. Refugees are being housed in camps inside Costa Rica. While the exodus continues, life in the Nicaraguan capital, Managua, has been unusually quiet, reports the Reuters News Agency. People appeared to be staying at home in fear of a repetition of the political violence in September when there were clashes between government forces and rebels. Following the border clash, there were fresh calls for the resignation of President Somoza.

    Costa Rica, which has called for an emergency meeting of the OAS, wants Nicaragua's expulsion. So far, Nicaragua has made no official comment on the diplomatic rift.
