The Cuban media on Thursday attempted to portray the people convicted in a bloody attempt to flee Cuba as criminals, drug takers and school dropouts. The Havana Popular Tribunal on Wednesday sentenced two of them to die, and Prensa Latina, the official Cuban news agency, said two others would have received the same punishment if not for the fact that one is only 19 and the other is mentally retarded. In all, nine people were sentenced for murder and piracy.

Cuban border guards, armed with rifles and hand grenades, killed at least four Cuban civilians attempting to swim to asylum at the U.S. Navy base at Guantanamo Bay during the last few weeks, the Clinton Administration said Wednesday. "We view these actions against individuals who pose no threat to others to be extraordinarily cruel and unacceptable," State Department spokesman Joe Snyder said. "We insisted that the Cubans end the practice."
