A group of 175 Americans arrived in Havana, risking jail sentences and fines by defying a US ban on travel to Cuba, Reuter reports from Havana. The group, seeking to press the United States into lifting the ban, flew on a chartered flight from Mexico, carrying banners proclaiming 'Freedom to Travel' in English and Spanish. Two of the tourists unfurled a large Cuban flag at Havana airport.
