Yoani Sánchez, Cuba's Best-Known Blogger, Arrested at Activist's Trial
Yoanni Sánchez is a true oddity in Cuba -- a young political activist famous worldwide for penning a blog critical of the Castro regime. Sanchez's courage has earned praise from President Obama and a place on Time magazine's "100 Most Influential" list, all while dodging government censors by emailing her Generacion Y posts to friends outside Cuba, who upload them to the web.
The 37-year-old writer was arrested in the city of Bayamo while attending the manslaughter trial of Spanish activist Angel Carramaro, according to yohandry.com, a local news source connected to the government.
