US, Cuba to announce embassy openings Wednesday

WASHINGTON (AP) – A senior Obama administration official says the U.S. and Cuba will announce the opening of embassies in Washington and Havana on Wednesday.

President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry will speak Wednesday morning about the major step in re-establishing diplomatic ties.

The official insisted on anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the announcement ahead of Obama.
