Cuba frees last jailed

The Cuban government has released the last journalist remaining in its
prisons. Albert Santiago Du Bouchet Hernández was freed last Thursday
and flew to exile in .

"We are greatly relieved that the last independent Cuban journalist
still in has been released," said a spokesman for the New
York-based press watchdog, the Committee to Protect Journalists.

"However, independent journalists in Cuba continue to face harassment
and intimidation for their work."

Du Bouchet Hernández, the former director of the independent news
agency, Havana Press, was serving a three-year sentence on charges of
"disrespect" and distributing enemy propaganda.
