Montevideo, October 12 (RHC)-- The sabotage bombing of a Cuban airliner in October 1976, killing all 73 people aboard, has been added to the list of terrorist activities perpetrated by the United States and its intelligence agencies against Cuba, journalist Niko Schvarz expressed.
Entitled "Posada Carriles Remains Unpunished," the journalist of the newspaper La Republica explained details of the attack, known as "The Crime of Barbados," organized by Luis Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch, counter-revolutionaries of Cuban origin, and perpetrated by Venezuelans Freddy Lugo and Hernan Ricardo Lozano.
After recalling that October 6th marked the 37thanniversary of the attack, in which Cuban, Guyanese and Korean people died, Cuba established that date as Day of the Victims of Terrorism, a scourge that has caused more than 3,400 deaths and around 2,100 disabled people.
The editorial explained the criminal path of Posada Carriles, who in spite of a reiterated demand of extradition by Venezuela, "is currently walking around the streets of Miami," the United States, "as if nothing had happened." Schvarz concluded his column with a list of terrorist operations by the United States in several countries, as Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Libya and others, "with the hackneyed pretext of the struggle against terrorism."
