A victory for the Cuban 5

A three-judge appeals panel in Atlanta has granted a new trial to the five Cuban nationals imprisoned in a government frame-up seven years ago. The five — Antonio Guerrero, Fernando González, Gerardo Hernández, Ramon Labañino and René González — were operating in Miami as a part of a Cuban anti-terrorist operation when they were arrested, held in solitary for 17 months and then railroaded to jail by federal agents.
