Cuban hunger strike ends

This photo of Martha Beatriz Roque was
posted on Facebook on Tuesday after
 she quit a hunger strike that she
began on Sept. 10.
Martha Beatriz Roque and more than two dozen other Cuban dissidents ended their hunger strike Tuesday after Cuban authorities released a little-known opposition figure named Jorge Vázquez Chaviano.
Some supporters of the socialist government had called the hunger strike an attention-getting stunt. Dissidents denied that and had expressed concern that one or more of the strikers could have died during the protest.
