The National Freedom Front (NFF) and Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) held demonstrations near the American Embassy in Kollupitiya today demanding that five Cubans imprisoned in the United States be freed.

The NFF said the Cubans were imprisoned for no reason at all and alleged that the US was violating human rights. It said American Embassies were interfering in the internal affairs of other countries.

JVP MP Vijitha Herath said the five Cubans were patriots and urged that they be released and the US sanctions imposed on Cuba and its people be lifted.
