The archbishop of Managua on Friday declared a fire at the Metropolitan Cathedral of the Nicaraguan capital as a “terrorist act” in the Catholic majority country.

"It is a terrorist act, an act of intimidating the Church in its evangelizing mission," said Leopoldo Brenes, who in July 2018 claimed that the Catholic Church is persecuted by the government of President Daniel Ortega. EFE-EPA
