• Farmers protest planned $50-b canal in Nicaragua


    MANAGUA: Hundreds of farmers on Tuesday demonstrated against a new $50 billion waterway aimed at rivaling the Panama Canal, irate at plans to expropriate the land they work. “We do not want the canal to be built. Nobody should come in here and take over our land,” said Ronald Enriquez at a march in the southern town of Potosi, where participants scuffled with police.
