Family members of prominent Cuban dissident Oswaldo Paya, who died in a car crash on Sunday, say they believe his car had been driven off the road.

At a funeral mass attended by hundreds of people in Havana, Paya's son, Oswaldo, said his father had received many death threats.

An official statement said the driver lost control as it drove on a road in eastern Granma province and hit a tree.

Paya, 60, was one of Cuba's main pro-democracy campaigners.
