Cuba releases dozens of opposition activists

The Cuban authorities have released at least 36 opposition activists since Wednesday, according to dissident organisations.

They are believed to be from a list of 53 activists the United States requested to be freed as part of efforts to mend links.

The BBC's Will Grant met one of the freed activists, Roberto Hernandez, who spent two years in jail for his role in a political protest.
