HAVANA - A Cuban agent on parole who a US judge allowed to return home for two weeks to see his gravely ill brother has gone back to the United States as required, the Cuban government said on Friday.

It said Rene Gonzalez, 55, had spent time with his family, and particularly brother Roberto, who has lung cancer.

US District Judge Joan Lenard granted Gonzalez his request for the visit with the conditions that he had to obtain permission from the US government and return within 15 days.

Similarly, jailed American contractor Alan Gross has asked Cuban President Raul Castro to allow him a temporary return to the United States to see his 89-year-old mother, who has lung cancer.
