The Cuban Embargo & Its Consequences

From BBC News:

Local authorities in Mexico City have fined a US-owned hotel, at the centre of a diplomatic row, $15,000 (£8,500).

They said the branch of the Sheraton chain had discriminated against 16 Cuban officials by expelling them from its premises last month.

The delegation was ordered out to comply with a US embargo against Cuba. A US law bans American companies from doing business with the island.

The hotel denied discrimination and said it would appeal the decision.
