Cuba’s government said Tuesday one person has died after anti-government protests, while rights groups said authorities have arrested more than 100 people.

The government said a 36-year-old man died Monday during a clash between protesters and police on the outskirts of Havana.

The Cuban capital had a heavy police presence Tuesday, two days after demonstrators there and in other parts of the country conducted the largest anti-government protests in decades.

Protesters expressed their frustration with food shortages, high prices, electricity outages and the government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
