Odds and ends

  • Cuba is condemning the coup in Honduras and says that its ambassador in Tegucigalpa was “beaten” by Honduran soldiers. The ambassador, along with those of Venezuela and Nicaragua, was reportedly with the Honduran foreign minister when soldiers “broke into the place where they were” and detained them. Prensa Latina story in English here. “The place where they were” was later identified by Fidel Castro as the foreign minister’s home. The New York Times covers the coup here, and the region’s unanimous rejection of it here.

  • Reuters reports on the low penetration of phone and Internet service in Cuba, based on new data released by Cuba’s statistics office.
