Cuba Blames US For Molotov Cocktail Attack At Paris Embassy

Cuba condemned the targeting of its Paris embassy on Monday as a “terrorist attack” encouraged by the United States after the building was bombarded with Molotov cocktails.

Firefighters in the French capital said two incendiary devices were thrown at the delegation, located in the city’s 15th arrondissement, causing minor damage.

“We denounce the Molotov cocktail terrorist attack against our Embassy in Paris @EmbaCubaFrancia,” Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez said on Twitter.

“I hold the US government responsible for its continued campaigns against our country that encourage this behavior and for its calls for violence, with impunity, from its territory,” he tweeted.

Fire officials said they were alerted to the attack after midnight and “the devices, which caused minor damage, were extinguished before (firefighters) arrived.”
