A crowd of hundreds was dispersed by officers of the Ministry of the Interior from the environs of the U. S. Interests Section in Havana.

According to eyewitnesses, the crowd had congregated upon hearing a
rumor that the U. S. diplomatic office was going to issue visas in commemoration of Fidel Castro’s birthday August 13.

An eyewitness, Pedro Chan, said one officer with a major’s epaulets
addressed the crowd in an attempt to get them to leave the area, and told
them that even if the U. S. were to issue the visas, the Cuban
government would not authorize their leaving the island.
