ESPIONAGE was suspected after it was revealed a high-tech US missile was accidentally shipped to Cuba.

A Lockheed Martin Hellfire missile was mistakenly shipped from Europe there in 2014.

It was supposed to go from France to Florida, but ended up in the Caribbean country under suspicious circumstances.

The dummy missile is a laser-guided, air-to-surface missile that weighs about 45kg (100lb). It can be deployed from an attack helicopter such as the Apache or an unmanned drone such as the Predator.

There are worries that the advanced technology could be passed on from Cuba to US rivals such as Russia or North Korea. In the wake of North Korea’s supposed H-bomb test, US officials say that they are trying their best to retrieve the missile.

Communist Cuba experienced a diplomatic thaw with Washington in July last year after more than 50 years of hostilities. But an embargo barring US trade and travel to the Caribbean island is still in place. And Cuba, made famous by Fidel Castro and Che Guevara, still has a dire human rights record.

  1. ANYBODY CAN EXPLAIN HOW A MILITARY WEAPON WAS IN A PRIVATE AIRLINES “AIR FRANCE” INSTEAD OF MILITARY AMERICANS PLANES ?
    May be this “mistake” was part of Mr.Obama and the brutal dictatort Raul Castro DEAL

  2. In 2004 during the Zapatero administration in Spain,the Spanish intelligence made public an announcement of the Cuban Intelligence penetration of the Spanish intelligence services. If this weapon was obtained by espionage ,there is a great possibility that it was obtained through Spain via espionage. We must remember that Spain is a NATO member. Cuba like we all know,is a nation that traffics intelligence.
