USA: Activist chains himself to crane protesting Trump's Cuba policy reversal

Cuban activist Diego Tintorero unfurled a US flag and chained himself on to a crane in Miami, Friday, in protest against US President Donald Trump's decision to revise the US-Cuban relations.

Tintorero scaled a crane located 800 metres (0.5 miles) away from a theatre where Trump was expected to hold a conference presenting the new Cuba-related policies. He then allegedly called up local media to inform about his demonstration and chained himself to the crane's metal bars.

Police and Miami fire rescue team units rushed to the construction site and helped him to get off the crane after two hours of negotiations. The man was then transported to a local hospital for a psychological evaluation and later arrested.
