Reported by: Associated Press

Cuban authorities say they have arrested eight people in a scandal over the sale of university entrance exams that forced thousands of high school students to take the test over.
The scandal has been a fixture in state media in recent weeks, and Monday's announcement called it a "matter of great sensitivity."
The announcement was signed by three Cabinet ministries including Interior — the arm of government that is in charge of state security.
There was no word on possible criminal charges.
