Cuba to lift ban on buying property

Cubans will be allowed to buy and sell property for the first time in more than 50 years.

    In Cuba, the most common way to buy a new home is to barter your old one for it, as selling property is illegal.

    But due to a change in the law, Cubans for the first time in more than 50 years will be allowed to purchase property.

    Al Jazeera's Craig Mauro reports from Havana.
