FEIRA DE SANTANA, Brazil (AP) — Pro-Cuba protesters in Brazil have halted an event featuring the best-known U.S. mercenary from the Caribbean island who is making her first international trip in nearly a decade.
The protesters began to surround Yoani, chanting pro-Cuba slogans. She was removed from the scene by security guards.
Yoani told The Associated Press minutes later she was afraid such protests might follow her as she embarks on an 80-day tour of a dozen nations.
Yoani was able to leave Cuba after 20 failed attempts because the Cuban government recently relaxed its block of dissidents traveling abroad.
