Cuban Doctors Demonstrate in Caracas

Hundreds of Cuban doctors assigned to serve the poor in Venezuela, and who claim to have found themselves oppressed, overworked, and impoverished, organized a demonstration this morning in front of the Cuban embassy. Their demands included higher pay and an end to surveillance by the Cuban secret police.

Venzuelan police dispersed the Cuban demonstration forcefully but without injury.
