    FILE - In this Oct. 31, 1983 file photo, a poster of then Grenada's Prime Minister Maurice Bishop and Cuba's leader Fidel Castro is seen in the doorway of a litter strewn office of the People's Revolutionary Army at Fort Rupert in St. George's, Grenada. A haunting Cold War mystery is getting a fresh look on the Caribbean island of Grenada, where the body of the Marxist prime minister is still missing nearly 30 years after he was executed during a bloody coup that sparked a U.S. invasion. Fort Rupert is where Bishop and seven others were captured and executed by an army firing squad on Oct. 14, 1983. (AP Photo/Richard Drew, File)

Cuban officials last year welcomed the arrival of the undersea fiber-optic cable linking the country to Venezuela, which was supposed to boost web capacity 3,000-fold. Even a retired Fidel Castro had hailed the dawn of a new cyber-age on the island. More than a year later, the government barely speaks of the cable anymore and Cuba's internet connection is still the slowest in the hemisphere. (AP Photo/Ariana Cubillos, File)
