    HAVANA — The Cuban government is expressing concern over a hunger
    strike launched by a U.S. government subcontractor imprisoned on the island.

    Alan Gross is a 64-year-old from Maryland who is serving a 15-year
    sentence in Cuba. He was convicted of crimes against the state after he
    was caught setting up illegal Internet access for the country’s small
    Jewish community.

    Gross announced Tuesday that he had begun his fast the previous week to
    protest his ongoing incarceration. He expressed frustration at both his
    own and the Cuban governments’ failure so far to resolve his case.

    The Cuban Foreign Ministry issued a statement Wednesday reiterating its
    willingness to negotiate a solution with the U.S. government. It said
    Gross has been receiving all due medical attention.
