The first cargo ship to sail from Miami to Cuba in 50 years has arrived in Havana, the BBC reports.
The ship was carrying humanitarian supplies such as food and medicine that are exempt from the US trade embargo against the communist-run island.
Its cargo was made up of charitable donations and gifts to relatives from Miami’s large Cuban exile population.
The vessel will now operate a weekly service linking Miami and Havana for the first time since 1962.
