Student protest in Cuba brings out anti-riot squad

A Cuban anti-riot squad, previously unseen but surprisingly well-equipped and with fixed bayonets, quelled a Pakistani student protest in Matanzas, a video of the event shows. It's not clear if the unit, previously unseen in public, belonged to the police or military, but its deployment signaled that the Castro government is well prepared for street disturbances.
