UN CONDEMNS CUBA HUMAN, RELIGIOUS RIGHTS ABUSES

    GENEVA (CWNews.com) - The UN Commission on Human Rights on Tuesday approved a resolution condemning Cuba for trampling human rights, repressing political speech, and oppressing religious groups.

    The commission, holding its annual meeting, voted 21-18 for the resolution with 14 abstaining. It was proposed by the Czech Republic and Poland and backed by the United States.

    About 100,000 Cubans marched in a government organized protest outside the Czech Republic Embassy in Havana following the vote.
