Cuba urged to free more prisoners

Opposition activists in Cuba have accused the government of failing to keep its promise to free another 13 jailed dissidents.
President Raul Castro agreed in July to free 52 political prisoners within four months.
Most have been released into exile in Spain, but 13 are still in prison because they refuse to leave Cuba.
Relatives of prominent dissidents, known as the Ladies in White, protested in Havana to demand their release.
The activists said Sunday was the deadline by which all 52 prisoners should have been freed, in accordance with a deal struck between President Castro and the Catholic Church.
"They are deceiving and have played with the Church, the government of Spain, the European Union and with all the international community", said the Ladies in White leader, Laura Pollan.
"This is proof that their word has no value, and that they cannot be trusted", she said.
