Cuba sees rare protests amid power cuts and food shortages

Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel has said that his government is willing to engage with protesters after hundreds of Cubans partook in rare public protests on Sunday to decry worsening conditions on the island.

The island is facing its worst economic crisis for three decades, with increasing food scarcity and hours long power outages.

In a statement yesterday, Mr Diaz-Canel said the government was ready to attend to the complaints and explain the many efforts that are being carried out to improve the situation.

He also blamed "terrorists" in Miami's Cuban exile community for stirring up protestors online and US sanctions for Cuba's increasingly bleak economy.
