Cuba, may 8 – Cuban Interior Ministry forces arrested four Cuban origin Miami-based citizens, who planned to carry out terrorist actions on the island.
An Interior Ministry’s release explains that the arrest took place April 26 and the citizens involved are named Jose Ortega Amador, Obdulio Rodríguez González, Raibel Pacheco Santos and Félix Monzón Álvarez.
According to the press release, the four men admitted that they intended to attack Cuban military facilities in order to promote violence. With this aim, three of them had traveled to Cuba in several occasions in 2013 to study the scene and prepare their actions.
They also admitted that these plans have been organized under the leadership of Miami-based individuals, such as Santiago Álvarez Fernández Magriñá, Osvaldo Mitat and Manuel Alzugaray, who are closely linked to international terrorist Luis Posada Carriles.
The Cuban Interior Ministry says that appropriate coordination will be carried out with competent US authorities to investigate the event and prevent that actions by terrorist individuals and organizations based in Miami put in danger the lives and security of citizens from the two nations.
