A custody battle is being played out in a Miami court for a four-year-old Cuban girl settled with U.S. foster parents. The girl was taken into custody when her mother attempted suicide after moving to the US. Her father, Rafael Izquierdo, wants her to return to Cuba. Florida officials argue she should stay with her wealthy foster parents, former baseball agent Joe Cubas and his wife. The case has evoked memories of the highly publicized 1999 custody saga of Cuban castaway Elian Gonzalez. (BBC)
