    US says Cuba is lying about negotiating release of Alan Gross

    US says Cuba is lying about negotiating release of Alan Gross

    The State Department says the Cuban government is lying about
    negotiating the release of a Maryland man.

    Cuba says it is waiting to hear from the U.S. about exchanging Alan
    Gross for five Cuban men held in an American federal prison on espionage
    charges.

    Gross has been in a Cuban prison for almost three years on similar charges.

    Now he's reportedly very ill.

    The State Department issued a statement saying in part, "We have
    repeatedly made clear to the Cuban government that we reject the notion
    of exchanging members of the so-called 'Cuban Five' for an American
    citizen who the Cuban government has imprisoned simply for trying to
    bring internet access to the Cuban people. But we have always been ready
    to hear from Cuba about a humanitarian gesture to release Mr. Gross."
