US excludes Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua from Americas summit - sources

The US decision, which followed weeks of intense deliberations, risks an embarrassing boycott of the US-hosted gathering later this week in Los Angeles if Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and some other leaders choose not to show up.
