Alternate Routes for Cargo Stuck at Las Manos

Alternate paths were authorized for Nicaraguan cargo stuck at the border, in order to reach Port Cortés in Honduras.

Thursday, July 30, 2009

Due to the Honduran conflict, some 250 Nicaraguan cargo containers are blocked from entering Honduras at the border post of Las Manos.

Nicaragua's customs authority, known as DGA, authorized trucks "to be routed to El Espino and El Guasaule, where they can enter Honduras and continue towards Port Cortés, in the Caribbean coast of the country", according to newspaper Elnuevodiario.com.ni.
