Sarah Steers at 12:00 AM ET

On April 8, 2011, Luis Posada Carriles, an anti-Castro Cuban militant, was acquitted of two counts of perjury and nine counts of making false statements by a jury for the US District Court for the Western District of Texas. These charges were brought following his purported involvement in a 1976 bombing of a Cuban airplane and several 1997 bombings of Havana tourist attractions. Prosecutors stated that they would pursue an extradition request for Carriles by Venezuela, which was initiated on January 26, 2009, and renewed on April 16, 2009.
