WASHINGTON - The White House on Friday urged Cuba to immediately release jailed US contractor Alan Gross, saying it was "past time" to allow him to return home.

"Cuban authorities have failed in their effort to use Mr. Gross as a pawn for their own ends," White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters in response to a question.
