Cuba – Journalist’s release and unblocking of dissident blogs – signs of real opening?

He was not forced to go into exile in return for his release. Reporters Without Borders hopes it will be soon be followed by the release of the last two journalists still held since Black Spring, Pedro Argüelles Morán and Iván Hernández Carrillo , who like Maseda are refusing to leave the country
