FILE - In this Nov. 27, 2012 file photo provided by U.S. lawyer James L. Berenthal, jailed American Alan Gross poses for a photo during a visit by Rabbi Elie Abadie and Berenthal at Finlay military hospital in Havana, Cuba. The top Cuban diplomat for North American affairs on Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012, accused Washington of lying about the health and confinement conditions of Gross, a U.S. government subcontractor imprisoned on the island. Gross is three years into a 15-year sentence for crimes against the Cuban state in a case that has chilled already frosty relations between the two nations. (AP Photo/James L. Berenthal, File)
