Americas leaders gather for summit in Cuba

The heads of Caribbean and Latin American states are meeting in Havana to discuss social and development issues.

    Leaders from almost every country south of the American border are gathering in Cuba for a meeting of the Community of Caribbean and Latin American States (CELAC).

    They will discuss a range of social and development issues as well as Argentina’s decades-old disputed claim of the British-controlled Falkland Islands.

    CELAC was created a little more than two years ago and has attracted attention as an alternative to the US dominated Organisation of American States.

    Al Jazeera's Adam Raney reports from Havana.
