FILE - In this March 5, 2011, file photo Cuban security forces arrive with USAID subcontractor Alan Gross, left, outside the courthouse in Havana, Cuba, where he is to stand trial. Gross sits in a military prison hospital. His family says he has lost about 100 pounds and they express concern about his health. All the U.S. diplomatic attempts to win his freedom have come up empty and there is no sign that Cuba is prepared to act on appeals for a humanitarian release. (AP Photo/Franklin Reyes, File)
