(Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel sent his condolences to his Liberian counterpart, George Manneh, due to the landslide at a gold mine that caused many deaths, diplomatic sources reported on Friday.

Diaz-Canel also sent this message to the families of the victims, said a press release from the Cuban embassy in that African nation, disclosed on the website of the Cuban Foreign Ministry.
