Cubans Vote in Municipal Election

Cuba is holding elections to choose more than 15,000 municipal council members. It is the beginning of a process that will culminate in delegates electing a new National Assembly next March. These are the first elections since President Fidel Castro temporarily handed over power to his younger brother, Raul, over 14 months ago. Critics, led b the United States and several European Union nations, say the process in the one-party state is undemocratic.
