Attached to Missiles

Nicaraguan Army Chief, Omar Halleslevens and leftist Sandinists have in common their passion for weapons, in particular for Russian made SAM-7 missiles.

This can be a bit of a problem if we consider that the ruling party, Liberal Constitutionalist (PLC), is proposing the destruction of 651 of the 1,051 SAM-7 missiles in the power of Nicaragua’s army.
The proposal is being backed by Nicaragua's President Enrique Bolaños, Halleslevens's boss.

Sandinistas accuse the US of being behind the PLC proposal, a move that, they argue, would compromise national security.

SAM-7 rockets can shoot down commercial planes.
