Wife of U.S. contractor jailed in Cuba pleads for his release

The wife of U.S. government subcontractor Alan Gross, jailed in Havana since Dec. 3, has urged U.S. and Cuban officials to resolve his case when they meet for migration talks on Friday. Raul Castro and the president of Cuba's legislature, Ricardo Alarcon, have suggested that the 60-year-old Gross was linked to U.S. intelligence agencies, though he has not been charged with any crime.
