Nicaragua's indigenous tribes fight for their land

In Nicaragua, at least 121 people have been killed since anti-government protests broke out seven weeks ago, according to the country's main human rights group. The protesters are calling for the resignation of President Daniel Ortega. Among them are Nicaragua's indigenous populations. The tribes are rebelling against settlers who are using force to keep them away from their land.

Meanwhile, Guatemala was hit by disaster this week, when the Fuego Volcano erupted on Sunday. Since then, it has continued to spew mud and ash. Dozens of people have been killed, with almost 200 more still unaccounted for. Guatemala's disaster agency says 1.7 million people have been affected by the eruption.

Finally, Canada is preparing to host the G7 summit at a cost of 605 million Canadian dollars. Those opposed to the summit in Quebec want to make their voices heard. Local authorities, expecting thousands of protesters and a potential security risk, are preparing a new system capable of handling any potential riots or attacks.
