More on Soto's death

The Cuban government issued a statement condemning the “defamatory campaign” surrounding the death of Juan Wilfredo Soto last Sunday in Santa Clara and insisting that he died of natural causes. Among other details, the statement says Soto suffered acute pancreatitis that led to multiple organ failure.

Today’s Herald story has the accounts of local dissidents and a pastor who says he saw Soto after he left the hospital Thursday and tweeted that he had been beaten by police.
