How to make sure you can stay safe when you’re abroad

The U.S. travel restrictions on Cuba were eased on Monday as part of President Donald Trump’s efforts to normalize relations between Washington and Havana.

The move came as a U.N. report warned of the threat of terrorism and other violent crime in the Cuban exile island.

The restrictions, imposed after the death of Fidel Castro, were announced on Jan. 19 by Trump’s homeland security secretary, Elaine Duke, and expanded in October when the U.K. and U.A.E. signed a deal on allowing Cubans to enter the United States.
