  • Description

    (ROLL CUE) AN AMERICAN CITIZEN HELD PRISONER IN HAVANA HAS RIDICULED CHARGES THAT HE CAME TO CUBA WITH PLANS TO KILL FIDEL CASTRO.

    (FILM IN) AN INTERVIEW AT HAVANA'S POLICE HEADQUARTERS, EDWARD NYE (CQ) OF CHICAGO AND CORAL GABLES, FLORIDA, SAID HE IS SURE A FULL INVESTIGATION WILL CLEAR HIM. THE FORMER U.S. NAVY FLYER HAS REFUSED TO TELL CUBAN POLICE OR THE AMERICAN EMBASSY THE PURPOSE OF HIS VISIT....OR HOW HE GOT THE ARMS FOUND WITH HIM WHEN ARRESTED.

    NOT FAR FROM THIS SCENE, EIGHTY ELECTRIC COMPANY WORKERS AGREED TO END THEIR FORTY-HOUR DEMONSTRATION IN FRONT OF THE PRESIDENTIAL PALACE. THE STRIKERS SAID THEY REPRESENTED SIX-HUNDRED WORKERS, WHO HAD BEEN BARRED FROM THEIR JOBS BY FIDEL CASTRO'S MILITIAMEN.

    THE DEMONSTRATORS CALLED OFF THEIR SIT-DOWN STRIKE AFTER PROMISES THAT CUBA'S PRESIDENT URRUTIA WOULD MEET THEM PERSONALLY TODAY TO LISTEN TO THEIR SIDE OF THE STORY.
