(Worthy News) – More than 140 Cubans have been detained or disappeared in a widening crackdown by Cuba’s security forces, according to international rights advocates monitoring the aftermath of the anti-regime protests that swept the island nation on Sunday.
While demonstrators did not return to the streets of Havana or other cities in force for a second day on Tuesday, tensions remained high in Havana, where security forces have reportedly fanned out across the Cuban capital and in some cases gone door-to-door searching for organizers of the nation’s largest protests in decades.
U.S. and European officials are demanding accountability from Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel. Officials in Spain, particularly, expressed outrage Tuesday that one of those detained by Cuban authorities is a journalist who works for the conservative Spain-based newspaper ABC.
