Tragically, a Canadian was killed in Cuba recently and a member of her family has identified her as a hospital worker from Quebec.
A spokesperson for Global Affairs Canada confirmed to Narcity that Antoinette Traboulsi, a Canadian citizen, was murdered in Cuba.
Consular services are being provided to her family because this happened in another country.
We offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Antoinette Traboulsi.
Jason Kung, Global Affairs Canada
Jason Kung, a spokesperson for the government agency, said that "deepest condolences" are extended to Traboulsi's family and friends.
While Global Affairs Canada can't give any more information about this tragic situation because of the Privacy Act, Sami Soussa, Traboulsi's cousin, told CTV News that she worked as an orderly at a hospital in Montreal.
He said that the 52-year-old travelled to Cuba on November 13 for a two-week vacation and went to the beach the next day.
Soussa said she was reported missing by a friend and then was found dead on a beach, buried in the sand.
Canadian consular officials are in contact with local authorities in Cuba to gather more information.
