Welcome to the ‘Jungle’: Cuban workers brawl at Havana airport

A melee broke out amongst Cuban workers in a crowded terminal at Jose Marti International Airport in Havana. Shocked and frightened tourists could only stand by and watch the fireworks a lo cubano, leading one Cuba traveler to describe the experience as being in a "jungle."

Brawl between workers at Jose Marti Airport causes panic among tourists

A brawl between workers at the Jose Marti airport in Havana caused panic among tourists according to witness accounts in the French newspaper Le Post. Apparently, some type of altercation between employees occurred in the luggage check-in line that turned physical with bodies flying and continued for 15 minutes until the police arrived. "I felt like I was in the jungle where they wanted to massacre each other," said one witness. It seems that some tourists filmed the incident and it may soon appear on YouTube.
