Fidel Castro Meets with the Cuban Five

Granma newspaper has published photos of a meeting on Saturday of Cuban Revolution leader Fidel Castro with the five Cuban anti-terrorist fighters and an article describing the occasion written by Fidel.
In the photos, Fidel appears at his home accompanied by his wife, Dalia Soto del Valle, along with Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino, Rene Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero and Fernando Gonzalez. The five were recently awarded the medal of Heroes of the Republic of Cuba by President Raul Castro.
The five anti-terrorist fighters, who never inflicted any damage on the United States, were trying to prevent and thwart terrorist acts against our people, Fidel writes in an article that accompanies the photos.
None of the five Heroes sought applause, prize or glory. They, their wives, parents, children, sisters and brothers and their countrymen, have the legitimate right to feel proud, Fidel wrote. He added that if they were in the United States, it was not to inflict any damage on that country, or take revenge for the crimes organized there against our country. The leader of the Cuban Revolution said that their mission was to prevent terrorist attacks against our country.
Fidel explained that he met with the heroes for five hours and listened to their marvelous stories of heroism.
