Three Cuban human rights activists were violently arrested by police during a protest in Havana on Thursday, according to the Hablemos Press news agency/human rights group.

Melkis Faure Echevarría, Sonia de la Caridad and Rolando Reyes Rabanal were demanding the release of Cuban political prisoners when plainclothes police agents attacked them.

One officer choked Reyes with a nylon sack he was carrying while another beat him, according to the report.

The three activists were taken to a Havana police station.

As of Friday, their whereabouts were unknown.

Police told Hablemos Press that the activists' names were not found in a database of prisoners.
