    Cuban dissident awarded Sakharov prize

    The European Parliament awarded Thursday its prestigious human rights prize to Cuban dissident Guillermo Farinas, who immediately called for an end to Cuba's Communist "dictatorship." The 48-year-old journalist became the third Cuban to win the Sakharov Prize, days from a European Union debate on whether to normalise relations with the regime led by the Castro brothers since the 1959 revolution.Duration: 00:36
