Police 'clean house' for Nicaraguan visitors

By

Police, in a move similar to Moscow's roundup of "antisocial" elements before the Olympic Games, have arrested 900 people in a massive sweep to clean up Managua for the first anniversary of Nicaragua's Sandinista revolution on July 17, which ousted President Anastasio Somoza Debayle. Two hundred police began the operation with house-to-house searches in three slum neighborhoods here.
