U.S. President Joe Biden warned Cuba’s leaders against using violence to break up protests that erupted across the island nation, where the pandemic has caused food shortages and coronavirus vaccines are in short supply.

Biden called the protests “remarkable” in remarks at the White House before a meeting with municipal leaders to discuss violent crime, and said that “the Cuban people are demanding their freedom from an authoritarian regime.”
