Cuba’s embassy in Paris was attacked overnight with at least three Molotov cocktails — which the Communist regime blamed on the US for supporting the recent uprisings.
The embassy shared images of small fires on the facade and at the entrance of the building. Cuban diplomats extinguished the blaze as French firefighters and police arrived just after midnight, officials said.
“We denounce the terrorist attack … Those directly responsible for these acts are those who incite violence and hatred against our country,” the embassy tweeted along with the images.
Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez directly blamed Washington.
“I hold the US government responsible for its continuous campaigns against our country that encourage these behaviors and for calls for violence, with impunity, from its territory,” he said.
A spokeswoman for the French Foreign Ministry said France condemned the attack and added that a judicial investigation had been opened over the incident.
The foreign ministers of the United States and 20 other countries on Monday condemned mass arrests in Cuba and called for full restoration of internet access.
France’s foreign ministry confirmed that there had been some material damage to the embassy but no injuries.
