Raul Castro Eases Restrictions on Sale of Computers, DVDs in Cuba

Cuban President Raul Castro moved to lift some restrictions on daily life, giving the green light to the sale of computers and DVDs, Reuters reported on Thursday.

"Based on the improved availability of electricity, the government at the highest level has approved the sale of some equipment which was prohibited," an internal government memo says, Reuters reported.

The end to the ban includes authorizing sales of computers; video and DVD players; some television sets; electric pressure and rice cookers; electric bicycles; car alarms; and microwaves, which can be bought freely by Cubans, Reuters reports.
