Castro decried court ruling
by UPI

HAVANA - Cuban leader Fidel Castro condemned a recent court decision allowing a former Cuban militant jailed in Texas to post bond.

Luis Posada Carriles -- accused of committing terrorist attacks in Cuba and Venezuela -- was allowed to post bond earlier this week, Granma newspaper reported Wednesday.

Posada, who escaped from prison in Venezuela in 1985, is charged in Venezuela with masterminding the bombing of a Cuban jetliner in 1976, killing 73 people. He has denied any involvement.

He contends he entered the United States by crossing the Mexican border last year, though Cuban officials assert he was smuggled into the country with the help of anti-Castro militants.

Venezuela and Cuba are demanding his extradition to Venezuela. The United States has said it would not turn Posada over to Venezuelan authorities.
