Jailed American in Cuba pleas to Obama

Published:Friday | December 6, 2013 | 12:33 PM

A US man imprisoned in Cuba has asked President Barack Obama to personally intervene to help win his release.



On the fourth anniversary of his arrest, Alan Gross wrote to Obama saying he feared the US government had abandoned him.



Gross was sentenced to 15 years in prison after he was caught setting up internet access for Cuba's small Jewish community on behalf of a US government aid agency.



The White House has publicly called for Gross' unconditional release.
