    WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is calling on the Cuban government
    to respect the rights of its people.

    In a statement Wednesday, Obama cited the recent jailhouse death of a
    on a hunger strike, uniformed Cuban security agents blocking
    an opposition march by women demanding the released of jailed loved ones
    and harassment of those who speak out for their fellow Cubans.

    The president called the events "deeply disturbing" and said they show
    that, instead of entering a new era, Cuban authorities continue to
    respond to the aspirations of its people with a clenched fist.
