Cuba claims that Morocco fired on its fishing boats
Las Palmas, Canary Islands
Cuba accused Morocco Monday of the weekend attack on a group of Cuban fishing boats off the west coast of Africa that left a ship captain dead and three men wounded. Cuba's consul here, Jesus Fernandez Ponce, said two Moroccan fighter planes gave no warning before they attacked the boats, which were refueling Cuba's tuna-fishing fleet off the coast of the former Spanish Sahara. The survivors were picked up by a Spanish Navy vessel and arrived here Monday.
