The Rolling Stones have arrived in Cuba for a landmark free concert that is expected to attract thousands of people later on Friday.
Until 15 years ago, Cuba's communist government banned Western rock and pop music - including The Beatles and Elvis Presley - as subversive.
Speaking to reporters on the band's arrival at the airport in Cuba, lead singer Mick Jagger, said it was going be a great show.
As the authorities race to uncover more information about the Brussels attackers, attention has turned to the city suburbs where they lived and planned the attacks on the city.
The BBC's Fergal Keane has been exploring Molenbeek, an area in Brussels that has become synonymous with jihadism.
More than half a million disabled people could lose out as a result of further changes over the next four years to welfare payments.
The formula the government uses to calculate the daily living component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) for disabled people will change in January.
The government said 640,000 people could be affected by this by 2020.
It said it would save £1.2bn and ensure PIP was fairer, but disability charities criticised the move.
Recipients of PIP are assessed using a points system to determine what level of help they receive.
Fire services must do "much more" to recruit black and minority ethnic (BME) firefighters, new fire minister Mike Penning has said.
His comments came as official figures showed just 4.4% of full-time firefighters in England and Wales are from non-white communities.
In Greater Manchester the figure is just 2.8% - even though 16.2% of the population is from an ethnic minority.
The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) said the figures were "totally unacceptable".
Mr Penning, who took over the fire and rescue portfolio in January, said diversity was "not an optional extra".
The Mexican government says there are some 1,000 kidnappings a year in the country, but it's thought the figure is closer to 100,000.
Kidnapping is a lucrative business, and kidnappers can earn millions of dollars.
The BBC met "Crack" who says he is a kidnapper. He spoke to Vladimir Hernandez for the Our World film: Kidnapped in Mexico.
The BBC cannot independently verify his claims.

Keyboardist and progressive rock legend Keith Emerson has died aged 71, his former band Emerson, Lake and Palmer says.
"We regret to announce that Keith Emerson died last night at his home in Santa Monica, Los Angeles," the band's Facebook page said.
The statement asked for his family's privacy and grief to be respected.
Emerson was widely considered one of the top keyboard players of the progressive rock era.
His former bandmate Carl Palmer said on Facebook: "I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of my good friend and brother-in-music, Keith Emerson.
Facebook has bought photo-editing app Masquerade, which lets people change their appearance in real-time.
The app can transform faces - often in a cartoon-like fashion - and overlay make-up, animal features or accessories on live video.
Masquerade's filters have been compared to those in rival Snapchat, which Facebook tried to buy in 2013.
One expert said Facebook was responding to competition from Snapchat, which streams millions of videos daily.
German counter-terrorism police are investigating documents said to reveal the identities of a large number of fighters of so-called Islamic State.
The files, obtained by German and British media outlets, are said to be recruitment questionnaires that identify thousands of supporters of the IS group from 50 countries.
They appear to contain names, addresses and phone numbers.
German officials say they are working on the belief the files are genuine.
A German interior ministry statement said the papers offered "a great chance to identify Germans taking part in terrorist activities of the so-called IS" and to understand the group's structure.
The SNP has said it is to vote against UK government plans to change Sunday trading laws in England and Wales.
Proposals to allow English and Welsh councils to permit larger stores to open for more than six hours will not directly affect Scotland, where there are no trading restrictions in place.
But the SNP said it had concerns over the knock-on effects on Scottish pay.
With more than 20 Tory MPs set to rebel, the risk of a government defeat in a vote on Wednesday has increased.
Millions of people across Indonesia and the Pacific are about to be treated to a total solar eclipse.
Beginning late on Tuesday (GMT), the Moon will pass directly in front of the Sun, fully eclipsing the solar disk.
This will block all direct sunlight, turning day into night.
The eclipse will be total in Indonesia and the Central Pacific, while parts of Australia and east Asia will experience a partial one.
People along a 150km-wide strip running through Sumatra, Borneo and Sulawesi - the path of eclipse totality - will experience a blackout from about 07:00 to 11:00 local time.
Malaysia and Australia say they remain "hopeful" that flight MH370 will eventually be found, two years on from its disappearance.
The aircraft disappeared between Kuala Lumpur and Beijing on 8 March 2014 with 239 people on board.
Australian-led search teams are combing a 120,000 sq km (46,330 sq mile) area of the southern Indian Ocean.
EDF has provisionally appointed Xavier Girre, who joined the company last year as finance director of its French business, as the group finance chief.
The project has been plagued by delays, but publicly the firm has insisted a decision to move forward is imminent.
In October last year, EDF agreed a deal under which China General Nuclear Power Corporation (CGN) would pay a third of the cost of the £18bn project in exchange for a 33.5% stake.
But according to reports, EDF is struggling to find the cash for its remaining 66.5% stake and is seeking help from the French government, which owns 84.5% of EDF.
The company is also facing opposition from French union officials, who have suggested that investment in Hinkley Point C should be delayed until 2019.
The CFE-CGC Energy union said there were problems with a similar reactor design in France that needed to be solved.
The new Hinkley plant - to be built next to two existing facilities - is due to start generating in 2025, and is expected to provide 7% of the UK's electricity once it is operational.
But the project was originally due to open in 2017, and it has come under fire for both its cost and delays to the timetable for building.
The government has also been criticised for guaranteeing a price of £92.50 per megawatt hour of electricity - more than twice the current cost - for the electricity Hinkley produces.
Tony Roulstone, who is in charge of the masters programme in nuclear engineering at Cambridge University, said the departure of Piquemal was "a big blow".
He said EDF is already facing a number of other financing issues including a decision to buy a majority stake in Areva's nuclear reactor unit, adding: "They are committed to upgrading their existing power stations in France at a cost of €55bn over 15 years."
Mr Roulstone said: "At a commercial level there is a way for the Government to step aside but at a political level, this is part of the energy strategy."
Turkish and EU leaders have gathered in Brussels for an emergency summit on tackling Europe's worst refugee crisis since World War Two.
The EU aims to stem the flow of migrants and plans to declare the route north through the Balkans closed.
It will press Turkey to take back economic migrants and has pledged to give Ankara €3bn (£2.3bn; $3.3bn).
Last year, more than a million people entered the EU illegally by boat, mainly going from Turkey to Greece.
