A Nicaraguan judge gave 30-year prison terms to two Cuban refugees captured by Sandinista troops last June while fighting with the U.S.-backed contras. Ubaldo Hernandez Perez, 27, and Mario Eugenio Rejas Lavas, 33, who said they had lived in Miami since 1980, listened quietly as Judge Reynaldo Monterrey read the sentence, the maximum under Nicaraguan law. The two were each sentenced to 27 years in prison for violating national security and public order laws.

Cuba has prohibited Nicaraguan national airline Aeronica from using Cuban airspace in its Managua-Miami flight, an Aeronica official said in Managua. Aeronica deputy manager Walter Gutierrez said Cuban authorities told pilots of an Aeronica jet with 104 passengers aboard that they could not fly through the Giron corridor. The plane had to return to Managua, Gutierrez said, adding that the Cubans gave no advance warning of the decision.

Cuban President Fidel Castro said Wednesday that he is cutting off all military aid to Nicaragua before the new government takes office next month, Cuba's official news agency Prensa Latina reported. Castro said Cuban assistance in housing construction and health care could continue if Nicaragua's new government desires, but Cuba would no longer supply Nicaragua with petroleum and food. Castro has close ties with Nicaragua's leftist Sandinista government, which was upset in the Feb. 25 election.

Cuba's Communist Party newspaper Granma said Tuesday that Nicaragua's Sandinista revolution is entering "a new stage of struggle" after the defeat of the leftist government in elections Sunday. "There is no doubt that it is a great setback, but it doesn't mean political bankruptcy (for the Sandinistas)," Granma said in an editorial. "The Nicaraguan revolution has passed through a tough test and is entering a new stage of struggle," it added.

Cuba pledged a supplemental 40,000 tons of oil to Nicaragua in answer to a plea for help in meeting the Central American nation's petroleum needs through the end of the year, the Sandinista government said. The increase raises Cuba's total oil contribution to 100,000 tons for 1987. "We have been holding intense meetings to try to cover our petroleum deficit, and the first country to respond is Cuba," Energy Minister Emilio Rappaccioli said.
