Two Cubans at UN ordered out of US

Two members of Cuba's United Nations delegation were ordered to leave the United States after being caught spying, a US spokesman said. They were identified as Rolando Salup-Canto, a third secretary, and Joaquin Rodobaldo Penton-Cejas, an attache. Failing an appeal against the expulsion order by the Cuban mission, they were to have 48 hours to leave the country, according to the deputy permanent US ambassador, Charles Lichenstein. The pair were detected engaging in ''hostile intelligence activities'' in the New York area in the last four to six weeks, Mr. Lichenstein added.
