Cuba gears up for key Communist Party summit
A Communist Party summit set to start this weekend on the 50th anniversary of the Bay of Pigs invasion offers Cuba’s aging leaders a last hurrah to celebrate the victories of their past, and perhaps a final chance to salvage their revolution’s future.

Carter visits Cuba amid dispute over contractor
Former President Jimmy Carter arrived in Cuba Monday to discuss economic policies and ways to improve Washington-Havana relations, which are even more tense than usual over the imprisonment of a U.S. contractor on the island.
Carter was scheduled to meet with Jewish leaders — suggesting that his visit will deal at least partly with the case of Alan Gross, who was arrested in December 2009 while working for Bethesda, Maryland-based Development Alternatives Inc. on a USAID-backed democracy-building project.
