MANAGUA - A Nicaraguan judge on Saturday ordered the incarceration of 18 people, including a Mexican policeman, who had posed as journalists while attempting to pass through the Central American country last week with at least $7 million in cash.

The suspects will remain behind bars in "protective custody" until a September 5 court date, when they will face money laundering and other criminal charges lodged by the federal prosecutors.

The group was detained on Monday as it tried to cross from the north into Nicaragua from neighboring Honduras with the cash in six vehicles, Nicaragua's national police commissioner Aminta Granera said on Friday.
