    An employee checks the quality in Serbian Glass Factory in the town of Paracin

    An employee checks the quality in Serbian Glass Factory in the town of Paracin, some 160 km (99 miles) south of Belgrade March 5, 2012. Founded in 1907, the glass factory was privatised 100 years later and employs some 1700 workers. It is the only factory of its kind in Serbia with the industry declining during the painful transition from communism to capitalism since the fall of Serb strongman Slobodan Milosevic in 2000. Unemployment in Serbia has now reached 27 percent as the country now an official candidate for membership of the EU struggles with falling demand and waning investment interest from the crisis-hit euro zone.

    FILE - In this Feb. 26, 2008 file photo a farmer stands in a tobacco field in the western province of Pinar del Rio, Cuba. The United States economic embargo on Communist-run Cuba turned 50 on Feb, 7, 2012. In the White House, the first sign of the looming embargo came when President John F. Kennedy told his press secretary to go buy him as many H. Upmann Cuban cigars as he could find. After the aide came back with 1,200 stogies, the president announced the embargo Feb. 3 citing "the subversive offensive of Sino-Soviet Communism with which the Government of Cuba is publicly aligned." It went into effect four days later. (AP Photo/Ariana Cubillos, File)
