The July 11 protest is the largest in Cuba in decades, with hundreds arrested and at least one protester killed

The US government imposed sanctions on Cuban officials it alleges committed human rights abuses during a crackdown on protests earlier in July.

The move by the administration of President Joe Biden comes amid pressure from Cuban-Americans and politicians for a response to the anti-regime protests.

The United States is also exploring ways to keep Internet access open on the island.
