Cuba releases 53 political prisoners as part of U.S. deal

Cuba released 53 political prisoners as part of last month's historic deal with the U.S. aimed at normalizing relations between the two countries, a U.S. official said Monday.

The official, who was traveling with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the issue on the record. The official said the U.S. has verified the release of the prisoners.
