Brushing off decades of distrust, President Barack Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro shook hands Monday in Havana's Palace of the Revolution, a remarkable moment for two countries working to put the bitterness of their Cold War-era enmity behind them, the Associated Press reports.

Greeting each other warmly, the two leaders inspected an honor guard before sitting down in front of American and Cuban flags.
