American Alan Gross is free after five years in captivity in Cuba. Does this signal improving relations with the Caribbean nation?By Sebastian Martinez | December 17, 2014
After five years behind bars in Cuba, American Alan Gross is finally free.
Cuban authorities released Gross as part of a prisoner exchange with the U.S., which handed over three Cuban agents convicted of espionage in the early 2000s.
CNN's Patrick Oppmann said, "Sen. Jeff Flake said progress, in Gross' case, is being made."
