HAVANA (AP) - U.S. diplomats are confirming that Cuban officials have given them some information about four Florida residents who were arrested on suspicion of preparing attacks against military installations on the island.
The U.S. Interests Section issued a statement confirming the May 8 meeting with representatives of the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It says "The Cubans provided some information about the allegations which we are now reviewing."
Cuba's Interior Ministry says the men identified as Jose Ortega Amador, Obdulio Rodriguez Gonzalez, Raibel Pacheco Santos and Felix Monzon Alvarez were detained in late April for planning "terrorist actions" masterminded from Florida.
