Havana says five Cubans taken in plot to kill Castro

Five "Cuban counterrevolutionaries" armed with American-made weapons and bent on assassinating Fidel Castro were captured in Cuba last week, Radio Havana reported. The broadcast said the group, "together with other elements due to arrive [in Cuba] later," planned to kill Castro "during the coming July 26 celebration." The date marks the anniversary of the abortive assault on the Moncada garrison, led by Castro in 1953, and the symbolic beginning of the Cuban revolution.

The men were said to have come ashore on Cuba's northern coast "after being trained in the United States." They have bee n turned over to the authorities for trial.
