  • Description

    Salvage operations began March 10th in Cuba, in Havana Harbour, as attempts were made to lift the cargo of the French ship "La Coubre", whose ammunition cargo was exploded earlier this week.

    Divers went down to the harbour bottom, to look for any damage to the installation, and also to bring up any wreckage that might give clues to the source of the explosion, which has created an international furor involving Mr. Herter of U.S.A. and Fidel Castro of Cuba in bitter vituperation.

    The actual ship-raising operation is expected to start in several weeks.
