HAVANA (AP) — The Cuban Embassy in Paris was attacked with gasoline bombs, Cuba's foreign minister said Monday night.
Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez did not offer any details of the incident in a post on his Twitter account announcing the attack. There was no indication of whether any damage or injuries occurred.
“I hold the U.S. Government responsible for its continuous campaigns against our country that encourage these behaviors and for calls for violence, with impunity, from its territory,” Rodriguez said.
Over the past three weeks, Cuban embassies in many cities around the world have been the scene of demonstrations both against and for Cuba's government in reaction to protests that erupted across the island on July 11 and 12.
Cuba has accused the U.S. government of fomenting a social media campaign aimed at destabilizing the Caribbean nation, which is going through a severe economic crisis exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic and U.S. sanctions.
