Cuba ready to free more political prisoners

Cuba has said it is ready to release more political prisoners, in addition to the 52 it announced it would free earlier this month.

The releases are part of a deal between Cuba, the Catholic Church and Spain, which is taking in many of the men after their release.

But the US has said prisoners who do travel to Spain will no longer be eligible for asylum in America, where many have relatives.

Michael Voss reports from Havana.
