Cuba/Barbados mark anniversary of 1976 bombing of Cubana flight

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, CMC – Barbados and Cuba have paid homage to the victims of the 1976 bombing of a Cubana Airlines jet off the coast of Barbados that killed all 73 people on board, lamenting the fact that the masterminds of the attack were never convicted.
Cuba’s Ambassador to Barbados, Mrs Lisette Perez Perez, told the wreath laying ceremony on Sunday that what happened to the Cubana passenger plane on October 6, 1976 was not an isolated incident.
“The cruelty of a 50-year war of terror against Cuba is abhorrent. Since the triumph of the Cuban Revolution, terrorists have murdered 3, 478 Cubans and incapacitated 2, 099 others.”
