Cuba to free 7 dissidents at Spain's request

By Rosa Tania Valdes

HAVANA (Reuters) - Cuba will free seven of 59 dissidents imprisoned since 2003, a move that opponents of ailing Cuban leader Fidel Castro said reflects a "climate of change" under his brother's rule.


The Spanish newspaper El Pais reported on its Web site that four of them will be sent to Spain with their families to receive medical treatment.
