The Miami News, September 9, 1963, "Raider Says He Destroyed Cuban Mill."

A low-flying exile raider dealt such destruction to a sugar mill in Cuba's Camaguey Province that the ground explosions rocked his plane, a refugee leader said here today.

Dr. Orlando Bosch, head of the [Insurrectional Movement of Revolutionary Recovery] (MIRR), said the pilot dropped six 50-pound bombs on the mill in eastern Cuba Saturday night, wrecking it.

"The blasts shooks his plane, he was flying so low," Bosch said. The pilot of the two-engine aircraft reported directly to his organization here after returning to his secret base in Central America, Bosch said.
