The Biden administration announced Friday that it will impose further sanctions on elements of the Cuban government over the crackdown on pro­democracy demonstrations earlier this month, as President Biden sought ways to help activists communicate freely and receive financial help from abroad.

The Treasury Department announced penalties on two security officials and a police unit that the Biden administration blames for attempts to harm or silence protesters.
