Authorities in eastern Cuba have released two Baptist pastors who had been imprisoned for two weeks.
Ruben Ortiz, 68, and Francisco Garcia Ruiz, 46, were arrested October 3 for "illicit financial activity."
Their crime: taking donations from congregations in Florida for impoverished churches in Guantanamo province.
Pastor Ortiz teaches at a Baptist seminary and leads the denomination's humanitarian aid projects.
Family members credit prayer, phone calls, and international news reports for their release.
However, they also report that Pastor Ruiz is now under medical supervision after the two-week ordeal.
