The World

June 15, 1989

Cuba revoked permission for a plane carrying 13 Cuban refugees being deported from the United States to land in Havana, forcing the plane to return to Birmingham, Ala., the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service announced. The Cubans, among the 125,000 refugees who came to the United States as part of the 1980 Mariel boat lift, were being sent back to their homeland under a 1984 program under which Cuba agreed to accept repatriation. Cuba gave no reason for its action.
