    Cuban ends hunger strike, says Alan Gross to be freed

    Cuban ends hunger strike, says to be freed

    – A little-known Cuban who launched a hunger strike
    seeking for jailed US aid contractor Alan said on Friday
    he began eating again because Cuban officials told him Gross will be
    released soon.

    Angel Enrique Fernandez, 45, said he was told Gross, serving a 15-year
    sentence for illegally providing equipment to Cubans, would be
    freed within two months.

    Gross' release would be good news for US-Cuba relations, which have been
    frozen by the case, but Cuban officials were not available to verify
    Fernandez' statements.

    He and Vladimir Alejo Miranda, 48, crudely sewed their mouths almost
    shut in late April, stopped eating and demanded freedom for Gross, 62,
    who they said had been unjustly imprisoned. They also sought improved
    on the communist-run island.
