Former US President Jimmy Carter to visit Cuba

HAVANA, March 25 (Reuters) - Former US President Jimmy

Carter and wife Rosalynn will visit Cuba next week to meet with
President Raul Castro and discuss ways to improve US-Cuba
relations, a Carter spokeswoman said on Friday.

The visit, made at the invitation of the Cuban government,

raised the possibility that Carter would get involved in the
case of US aid contractor Alan Gross, recently sentenced to
15 years in prison for providing illegal Internet access to
Cuban groups.

The case has strained US-Cuba relations after a brief

warming under President Barack Obama.
