INTERIOR MINISTRY'S OSS AGENTS ARREST 12 YOUTHS SEEKING TO ESCAPE By Ricardo González Alfonso, Cuba Free Press.

HAVANA - Agents of the Ministry of Interior's Office of State Security (OSS) captured 12 young people who were attempting to escape from the country illegally from Puerto Padre, in the eastern part of the island.

The youths' boat was detained for more than 48 hours and this reportedly caused a series of public disturbances when neighbors sympathizing with the young people gathered to discuss the matter.

As of time of writing this, the government's "news" agency had not mentioned the incident. However, the news reached this reporter that government employees carried out an organized act of repercussion in Puerto Padre to counteract negative public reaction to the incident.
