Cuba will release another of its political prisoners

Cuban Roman Catholic Church officials say the government has agreed to release four more political prisoners and send them into exile in Spain.

The church made the announcement Wednesday, saying Alexis Borges, Victor Jesus Hechavarria, Osmel Arevalos Nunez and Rodrigo Gelacio Santos are to be freed in the coming days. Reports, however, say the men are not among a group of dissidents who were jailed in a 2003 Cuban government crackdown and who were to have been set free by the end of 2010.
