Cuba revokes accreditation of Spanish journalist

One of Spain's largest media groups says Cuba has revoked the accreditation of its correspondent on the Caribbean island for alleged bias and negative reporting.
El Pais said Sunday that 47-year-old Mauricio Vicent has reported from Cuba for newspaper El Pais and radio network Cadena SER _ both part of Grupo Prisa _ for 20 years.
Cuba's international press center informed Vincent his permit was withdrawn "irrevocably," according to El Pais.
El Pais said Vicent's work was an example of professionalism, impartiality and balance, and that he won Spain's 1998 International Press Club award for best work. The paper says he is married to a Cuban national and has two children.
