Accused Cuban Airliner Bomber Granted Bail

Accused Cuban Airliner Bomber Granted Bail
New developments in the case of Luis Posada Carriles – the anti-Castro Cuban militant connected to the 1976 bombing of a Cuban airliner that killed 73 people. A federal judge has ruled Posada can be set free on bail. Posada is being held not on terrorism charges, but for naturalization fraud and making false statements. He snuck into the United States in 2005 and then lied about how he entered the country. The Bush administration has refused to extradite him to Venezuela or Cuba to stand trial for the airline bombing. Federal prosecutors are challenging the bail ruling. Posada’s attorney says he expects to see him freed next week.
