Human Rights Group Says Cuba Has 60 Political Prisoners...

Cuba's leading human rights commission on Friday accused the government of having 60 political prisoners, a number the group acknowledges includes armed insurrectionists, hijackers and spies as well as peaceful political activists. Cuba's Communist government has said it has no political prisoners, and that opponents mistakenly consider armed counter-revolutionaries and common criminals as political cases. Those and other releases helped reduce the commission's number of political prisoners from 103 a year ago, and Amnesty International does not currently recognize any prisoners of conscience in Cuba.
