Dozens arrested as protest gears up in Cuba

Cuban security agents reportedly arrested about 40 dissidents and put another 50 under house detention Tuesday at the start of a crackdown designed to block protests one year after the death of political prisoner Orlando Zapata Tamayo.

“The repression is based on the expectation that the situation could get worse’’ on the Wednesday anniversary of Zapata Tamayo’s death, said Havana human rights activist Elizardo Sanchez Santa Cruz.
