American imprisoned in Cuba starts hunger strike

In this Nov. 27, 2012 file photo provided by James L. Berenthal, jailed American Alan Gross poses for a photo during a visit by Rabbi Elie Abadie and U.S. lawyer James L. Berenthal at Finlay military hospital as he serves a prison sentence in Havana, Cuba. The U.S. government masterminded the creation of a "Cuban Twitter" a communications network designed to undermine the communist government in Cuba, built with secret shell companies and financed through foreign banks, The Associated Press has learned. The project, dubbed "ZunZuneo," slang for a Cuban hummingbird’s tweet, was publicly launched shortly after the 2009 arrest of Gross. He was imprisoned after traveling repeatedly to the country on a separate, clandestine USAID mission to expand Internet access using sensitive technology that only governments use. (AP Photo/James L.
