In Nicaragua, Waldemar Stanislaw Sommertag, the Apostolic Nuncio to the Central American nation and the Auxiliary Bishop of Managua, Jose Silvio Baez were assaulted on July 9, 2018, by pro-government paramilitaries, according to Vatican News.
The attack happened when the bishops, priests and a delegation of journalists arrived outside the San Sebastian Basilica in Diriamba, south of the Nicaraguan capital to help anti-government protesters trapped inside the besieged church. The Catholic Church in Nicaragua has strongly condemned the attack.
Bishop Silvio Jose Baez was punched in the stomach, sustained an injury to his arm and his pectoral cross was snatched from him

Praise the Lord
