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

The wife of a U.S. government subcontractor jailed in Cuba for nearly a year has written to Raúl Castro urging his release and saying that he is "remorseful" over his actions in Havana. Alan Gross was arrested Dec. 3 in Havana after delivering satellite communications equipment to Cuba's tiny Jewish community under a subcontract with the U.S. Agency for International Development to promote civil society and democracy on the island.
