Cuba denies entry to Spanish socialist

Something must be happening in the brotherhood of Castro dictators. El País reports this morning that Luis Yáñez, a socialist Spanish MEP, was refused entry in  Cuba, and had to board the next plane out of the prison island. Surely a sign of democratic improvement, eh?

UPDATE: Spain requested explanations from the Cuban Ambassador, who said “internal laws” prompted Yáñez’s expulsion. This comes from the very dictatorship Spain’s Foreign Secretary Moratinos wants the EU to improve relations with.
