Leaked jailhouse photo of Cuban activist (updated)

Antonio Rodiles
A grainy photo of jailed democracy activist Antonio Rodiles is spreading quickly on Facebook and other social media networks.
Rodiles is director of a democracy group called Estado de Sats. Cuban authorities arrested him and several dozen other activists on Nov. 7 and 8.
Estado de Sats has now posted a leaked jailhouse photo of Rodiles on the group's Facebook page along with this explanation:
A few moments ago, we found in the garden of the house a little white package with a flash memory containing this photograph of Antonio in the prison cell. We don't know the source, but thanks!

Update:
A reader asked if the photo has been altered. I don't know the answer to that, but uploaded the image to Photoshopped Image Killer and all it detected was that the white balance has been adjusted - see below.
