Cuba thanks Kenya for support to clarify the situation of doctors

Havana, February 22 (Prensa Latina) The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Cuba, Bruno Rodríguez, today thanked the President of Kenya, William Ruto, for his interest in supporting efforts to clarify the situation of two Cuban doctors kidnapped in that country.

In his profile on the social network information on that matter, Lazo traveled to Kenya on Tuesday to inquire about doctors Assel Herrera Correa and Landy Rodríguez Hernández, kidnapped in 2019 by the Somali terrorist group Al-Shabaab, while providing health collaboration.

According to unconfirmed news, the doctors would have died as a result of a bombing by the United States African Command (Africom) on positions of the violent organization in the town of Dilib, Somalia.

Cuba gives absolute priority to these efforts, which will continue until all possibilities to confirm the situation of the doctors have been exhausted, the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs said recently in a statement.
