Cuban President Raul Castro announced today the return to Havana of the three counter terrorism fighters imprisoned in the United States for more than 16 years.
In a special simultaneous broadcast statement, the Head of State informed on the arrival of Ramón Labañino, Gerardo Hernández and Antonio Guerrero, part of the group internationally known as the Cuban Five.
Their two compatriots René González and Fernando González had already returned to the Island.
Raúl Castro said that such progress in the bilateral relations was reached during an exchange at the highest level, which included a telephone conversation with his peer from the US, Barack Obama.
