Starting Friday, U.S. Will Ease Restrictions on Travel to Cuba | NYTimes.com

By PETER BAKER and RANDAL C. ARCHIBOLD

The Obama administration announced on Thursday a set of new regulations to take effect on Friday easing decades-old restrictions on travel, business and remittances, putting into reality some of the changes promised by President Obama last month when he announced plans to resume normal diplomatic relations with Havana.
