A student holds up a photograph of Cuba's former President Fidel Castro at the memorial of Jose Marti on Revolution Square in HavanaBy Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Eight Republican and Democratic U.S. senators introduced legislation on Thursday to repeal all restrictions on U.S. citizens' travel to Cuba, the first step in Congress toward ending the U.S. embargo since President Barack Obama moved toward normal relations last month.

Opening statements in Hernandez's trial are set for Friday, Jan. 30, 2015.
