Cuban Trapped in Airport Gets Refugee Status

Johandry Nuñez, 27, requested refugee status after he was detained, claiming he was fleeing religious persecution in Cuba.

After 16 days in the airport, during which he was allowed to roam freely about the boarding areas and converse with passengers, he was granted refugee status.
