Castro Not Objecting to U.S. Detainee Plan

January 05, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

President Fidel Castro does not oppose a U.S. plan to house detainees from the war on Afghanistan at the naval base at Guantanamo Bay, two U.S. senators said in Havana.

Castro "is not raising objections to the use of Guantanamo," Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) said before he and Sen. Lincoln Chafee (R-R.I.) completed a two-day visit.

The U.S. military said recently that it would house an undisclosed number of Al Qaeda and Taliban detainees at the U.S. base in southeast Cuba.
