Kingston Gleaner (Newspaper) - October 7, 2005, Kingston, Kingston NEWS 'rf RE I I THE GLEANER FRIDAY. OCTOBER 7, 2005 BH mmmm REUTERS Family members carry photos of the victims of a Cuban airliner which downed in 1976 during a ceremony at Havana's Colon cemetery yesterday. CUBA Nation observes plane bombing anniversary HAVANA. (Reuters): FAMILY AND friends of 73 people killed when a Cuban airliner was blown out of the sky 29 years ago marked the tragedy's anniversary yesterday by bitterly accusing the United States of harbouring the bombers. Some 200 people gathered at Havana's main cemetery to remember the victims of what Cuba views as its own 9/1 I. even as President George W. Bush delivered a major speech on terrorism in the United States and said that those who harbour terrorists are equally guilty. "What happened Sept. 11.2(X)I. in the United States is not foreign to us," said Margarita Morales, whose father and the junior Cuban fencing team he coached died in the 1976 plane blast. "The families of the victims in the United States are waiting like we are for justice. ... We demand (President Bush) stop looking for excuses to protect (Luis) Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch," she told the mourners, many of whom, with tears in their eyes, wore T-shirts or carried placards with pictures of the dead. Cuba accuses the United States of using militant, anticommunist Cuban exiles like Carriles and Bosch to conduct terrorist attacks against the country since President Fidel Castro came to power in a 1959 revolution.

Trinidad (AP): THE UNITED States Embassy has warned American citizens to avoid the dow ntown area of the capital for four days next week, following a series of bombings that have all occurred around the same time of the month. Americans in Trinidad & Tobago should avoid downtown Port-of-Spain from October 9-12. and should take general precautions at all times, an embassy spokesman said yesterday. ■ ANTIGUA The bombings began July I I. when an explosion in a trash bin on a busy downtown street injured 14 people _ including a woman whose foot was amputated as a result of her injuries from the blast. A second went off in a pile of trash bags on August 11 and the third exploded in a trash bin behind a fast-food restaurant on September IO. No one was injured in either incident. "The U.S. Embassy has the responsibility to make citizens aware of any potential danger, and given the pattern of the dates of the previous three bombings, the embassy felt it was appropriate to make U.S. citizens living in Trinidad and Tobago aware," said spokesman Robert Skinner. Trinidad's government, which has not announced any arrests in the bombings, said it has increased security in the capital, but has not urged its citizens to avoid downtown. PM announces hike in gasolene prices ST. JOHN S, Antigua. CMC: ANTIGUA AND Barbuda’s Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer has announced a hike in fuel prices here. Spencer said gasolene will he increased from EC$9.30 (US$3.44) to $11.89 (US$4.40) per gallon - a hike of $2.59 (US$0.95). Diesel will now' be retailed at $10.44 (US$3.86) per gallon.

The Antiguan leader said the government would also announce new measurers to soften the effect of the increase. He. however, did not specify what these measures would be. flUiMCIAl SERVICES commission FSC TO HOST 2ND ANNUAL CARIBBEAN SECURITIES REGULATORS CONFERENCE Representatives from the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO), the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), as well as regional stock exchanges are among the participants expected to attend the 2nd Annual Caribbean Securities Regulators Conference, to be held at the Jamaica Conference Centre, November 7 - 8, 2005.
