US could lift Cuba embargo after oil discovery
The world's longest-running embargo has endured in part because there was little the US wanted to buy from its impoverished neighbour.

But the discovery of between five and 20 billion barrels of oil in the deep waters off Cuba's north coast, only 60 miles away from Florida, has made American businessmen and politicians consider lifting the embargo.

Repsol, the Spanish oil firm, will start exploratory drilling within months. If it strikes a large deposit, the trade embargo could be significantly revised or removed, according to Professor Mark Jones, an expert on Latin America at the Rice University of Texas.

With a little help from Venezuela, Cuba emerges from the data dark ages
It’s been four months since Cuban officials stood on the shores of the island’s south coast and hailed the arrival of a new undersea fiber optic link to Venezuela, notching it as a new blow to U.S. imperialism.

The cable is due to go online this summer and once Cuban authorities finally turn on the juice, bandwidth capacity for the least-connected country in the hemisphere will leap by a factor of 3,000.

Cuba denies dissident died after police beating
The Cuban government has strongly denied that police beat a dissident who later died.

Juan Wilfredo Soto, 46, who suffered a range of health problems, died from natural causes, officials said.

The authorities accused what they termed "counter-revolutionary elements" of fabricating lies about his death.

Dissident groups had accused police of hitting Mr Soto during a protest in the city of Santa Clara last Thursday. He died three days later.
