The mother, wife and daughter of Cuban political prisoner Julián Antonio Monés carried out a hunger strike in Revolution Square in Havana to draw attention to his case. Monés, who was released from prison earlier this year, was arrested in late September and immediately started a hunger strike that has left him critically ill.
Monés' family members started the protest Wednesday morning, and when security officials asked the reason for the demonstration, they were asked to visit a government prosecutor's office on Thursday morning to get an update on Monés' case.
His wife, Matilde Duportey Acosta, said if they did not get a sufficient response, she and her daughter and mother-in-law would return to Revolution Square to resume their protest.
Information about what happened Thursday was not available.
