U.S. President Barack Obama has announced an important policy change toward Cuba. He is directing the government to allow unlimited travel and the transfer of money to family members in Cuba. About 1.5 million Americans have relatives in Cuba. The administration will also issue licenses to American telecommunications and other companies to provide cellular and television services.
Another move could represent one of the biggest breakthroughs in Cuban-American relations since Fidel Castro took power 50 years ago — the perjury indictment that attracted little attention last week when it was issued in El Paso, Texas, against an 81-year-old Cuban exile linked to bombings in Cuba. Worldfocus correspondent Peter Eisner reports on the implications of the indictment.
