A group of pro-government Cubans muscled their way into a closed-door meeting of grassroots activists Thursday, disrupting for the second day in a row a tension-filled meeting ahead of this week's Summit of the Americas.

The activists from across Latin America and the Caribbean were putting together proposals to present to U.S. President Barack Obama, Cuba's Raul Castro and some 30 other leaders at the summit starting Friday on topics ranging from protection of the environment to support for democracy in the region.
