Penultimos Dias has word that Yoani Sanchez and other Cuban bloggers have been arrested in Havana.
Yoani Sánchez, Orlando Luis Pardo, Ciro Díaz and Claudia Cadelo among those arrested.
Later in the evening,
Penultimos Dias reports the Yoani and Orlando were verbally abused and severely beaten. Yoani was told that “this is as far as she would go.”
Ernesto, I have just spoken with Yoani, she is already in her house. She took a blow to the eye. They have beaten her physically and verbally. Orlando as well. They were shouting at the patrol from inside until they had arrived, they placed her head down and her feet up and they applied karate blows. She was very nervous, so was I.
Yoani blogs at Generation Y.
