HAVANA
Cuba’s official newspaper Granma says two men have been sentenced to
life imprisonment in a migrant trafficking scheme that left four people
dead.

The daily reported Monday that another five people have received prison
sentences ranging from eight to 25 years in the unsuccessful plan.
Granma says the trial was held in recent days in a provincial court in
Artemisa, about 60 kilometers (37 miles) west of the capital.

Details about the case were sketchy. The report did not specify how the
four people died on June 7 in Artemisa municipality. It said in the
scheme, 11 people were charged money to be taken to the United States by
sea, but it didn’t say how much.

The case comes as Cuba and the US move toward a more normal relationship.
