Cuba says fasting jailed American in 'good physical condition'

Judy Gross (top-L), wife of imprisioned US citizen Alan Gross, who has been held in a Cuban prison for four years, calls on US President Barack Obama to help free her husband on December 3, 2013Jailed American Alan Gross is in “good condition,” the Cuban government said Wednesday in response to news the USAID subcontractor had gone on a hunger strike to press for his release. The foreign ministry said Gross was being “held in a hospital not because his health requires it but because it guarantees that he receives specialized care by highly qualified medical personnel.” He has received “dignified and decent treatment,” the statement by foreign ministry official Josefina Vidal said. The 64-year-old was arrested in December 2009 for allegedly distributing telecommunications equipment to members of Cuba’s Jewish community under a contract with the US Agency for International Development.
