Economic reform leads the agenda at this weekend's Communist Party Congress in Cuba. The party summit is the first in 14 years, and the first since President Raul Castro took over leadership of the country from his brother, Fidel. Host Liane Hansen talks to reporter Nick Miroff about the Cuban Communist Party Congress and commemorations in Havana to mark the 50th anniversary of the botched Bay of Pigs invasion.
