    Cruz, Diaz-Balart, Ros-Lehtinen send letter to Secretary Kerry calling for investigation into treatment of Cuban dissidents WASHINGTON, D.C. - Following this week's opening of the Cuban Embassy, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today introduced legislation to rename the street where the embassy is located as "Oswaldo Payá Way" in honor of Cuba's late leader in democratic movements.

    CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) - Venezuela's military tapped a leading businessman Friday to replace former leftist president Hugo Chavez, whose combative rule was ended by army commanders after a bloody repression of a huge street protest. Pedro Carmona - a figure straight from the economic elite Chavez had demonized during his three-year rule - said he would hold legislative and presidential elections within a year to replace Chavez. But Carmona's appointment was challenged by Venezuela's attorney general as unconstitutional, and several Latin American nations condemned Chavez's ouster Friday.
