    Ballots are being counted in Cuba after millions of people voted on whether to approve a new constitution.

    The government says it offers more freedoms while still embracing communism as the official political ideology.

    But the proposed constitution has been divisive, with some saying it doesn't go far enough, while others fear it is too socially liberal.
