The arrest and extradition of black nationalist Assata Shakur, who was convicted of killing a New Jersey state trooper in 1973, is still "off the table," a top Cuban diplomat has said.
After the release if dozens of prisoners, the US government says it will maintain pressure on Cuba to release more ‘political’ detainees.
Rolando Sarraff Trujillo, a Cuban citizen, spent 20 years in jail for providing intelligence to the CIA. His ordeal was a last vestige of the Cold War between the US and Cuba.
The US and Cuba swapped prisoners and announced a plan to resume diplomatic relationships, starting a "new chapter" after half a century of hostility.
