Lines at Cuba travel agencies on day 1 of new law

Cubans formed long lines outside travel agencies and migration offices, as a highly anticipated new law took effect Monday, ending the island's much-hated exit visa requirement. The measure means the end of both real and symbolic obstacles to travel by islanders, though it is not expected to result in a mass exodus. Most Cubans are now eligible to leave with just a current passport and national identity card, just like residents of other countries. (AP Photo/Ramon Espinosa)
