3 weeks on: US silence following terrorist attack on Cuban Embassy

Cuba’s Foreign Ministry was yesterday (21 May 2020) demanding answers from the United States three weeks after the island’s embassy in Washington was the target of a terrorist attack on 30 April 2020.

The Cuban Embassy in Washington, only a few blocks from the White House, was attacked by Alexander Alazo Baró with an AK-47. 32 rounds were fired at the building, with a clear intention to kill diplomatic staff – although thankfully no one was killed in the attack.
