This Date in History: Cuba Caught Aiding Irish & Colombian Terrorists 2

August 11, 2001:  Colombian police arrested three members of the Irish Republican Army (IRA).  Captured in Bogota, all three had apparently been providing specialized bomb-making expertise to the FARC.  One of the three arrested was Nial Connolly, the IRA’s representative to Cuba since 1996. The BBC and Irish Times reported that Connolly trained at several Cuban military camps and was funded by the Cuban government. The European media also reported that Cuba acted as the conduit between the IRA and the FARC, which maintained a permanent presence in Havana.  Bob Graham, Chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence went further, stating that Cuba “is the Latin American headquarters for the Irish Republican Army” and continued to materially support the FARC, especially in the medical arena.
