Cuba replaces 2 Cabinet ministersThe Associated Press
HAVANA -- Cuba has reassigned two Cabinet ministers who oversaw economic sectors allegedly hit by corruption.
A notice in the Communist Party daily Granma says Communications Minister Medardo Diaz Toledo will rejoin the armed forces and be replaced by a vice minister.
Tomas Benitez Hernandez is also out as minister of basic industry, which controls mining and energy. A deputy will fill his post.
Some foreign news media have reported the corruption-related arrests of two senior officials at the Communications Ministry, though the government has made no statement.
Businessmen have also reported detentions involving alleged graft at the Moa nickel mine project, run jointly by Cuba and Canadian company Sherritt.
Wednesday's notice in Granma did not say why the Cabinet changes were made.
