Cuba: Raul Castro to serve one more term as president

Is this the official beginning of the end of an extraordinary era of power in Cuba?

Raul Castro has announced he will only serve one more term as president, confirming that this will be the last government on the island headed by a Castro since they swept to power in the 1959 revolution.

Raul Castro was re-elected President on Sunday, at the first session of the country's new parliament.

The BBC's Sarah Rainsford said it was being seen as a historic moment.
