Spanish Blogger Arrested

Efforts to contact Diego Ortiz, a senior member of the international service union delegation in Cuba, have failed after he posted a message on the internet that Cuban police officers were attempting to enter his home. Posting under the name "Havana Hombre," Mr. Ortiz has been updating the outside world on the situation in Cuba since early yesterday. He was arrested last night at demonstration against the government of President Castro, but released early this morning. His passport, evidently, had been confiscated.
