Cuba dissidents concerned for mystery protester

SANTIAGO, Cuba _ Cuban dissidents say they don't know the man was who shouted anti-government slogans before Pope Benedict XVI's Mass in the eastern city of Santiago.
Nor do they know his whereabouts a day after security agents removed him from the plaza.
But they're trying to find out, and worry he might face punishment.
Elizardo Sanchez is a de-facto spokesman for government opponents on the island.
On Tuesday, he called on President Raul Castro's government to identify the man and say what happened to him.
The unknown man yelled "Down with the Revolution! Down with the dictatorship!" on Monday before security agents hustled him away.
