Cuban dissident Darsi Ferrer being tortured in jail

Just in from the blog Uncommon Sense..........

Cuban human rights activist Dr. Darsi Ferrer, in jail since July 21 but not formally charged with a crime, is being tortured by the Castro dictatorship, which is refusing him treatment for a painful dental problem, according to a dispatch posted at Miscelaneas de Cuba.
