    The Cuban authorities have detained dozens of dissidents over the weekend including around 70 members of the Ladies in White group.

    The women were picked up by police after they strayed from their permitted protest route.

    Although it is not clear where they are being held human rights spokesman Elizardo Sanchez said he did not expect them to be detained for long.
