Cuban Government Purge

Unconfirmed reports have emerged from several sources that President Raul Castro or someone within his government ordered the execution of dozens of officials from several different government ministries. These execution were conducted by the army, which apparently is at least under the partial control of Mr. Castro. These executions help shed light on the six hour gap between the announcement that Raul Castro would address Cuba and the actual statement.

In spite of this violence, dissident groups in Havana and elsewhere do not appear to have cancelled plans for demonstrations tonight against the Castro government.
