40 years ago a horrendous terrorist act was committed against a civilian Cubana de Aviación aircraft that killed 73 people on board, 57 Cubans, 11 Guyanese and 5 North Koreans. An explosive charge planted by mercenaries destroyed the aircraft in midair a few minutes after takeoff from the airport in Barbados. The culprits had proven links with the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States and still enjoy impunity and protection in the territory of that country.
