Agents arrested three per- sons, including one Cuban United Nations attache, and seized a small arsenal of explosives. Two other members of the Cu- aan mission to the United Na- tions, a husband and wife, were named as conspirators and furn- ishers of the explosives but were not arrested because of diplo- matic immunity. The U.S. delegation to the actions were a most flagrant abuse of the privilege of residence ia this country. The government accused the three under arrest of conspiring to gather information on U.S. mili- tary installations and to destroy national defense materials, prem- ises and utilities in New York. Further details were not given. Seized in a morning raid on a returned to Dyess Hospital some- Manhattan shop were six French delayed-action incendiary bombs.
