Cuba's Prisoner Trial Continues

Mar. 30, 1962 - Sitting on benches on an outdoor basketball court, nearly 1,200 prisoners captured in the invasion of Cuba last April went through the second day of their military trial today. Morning newspapers said they had already “admitted their guilt.” Western newsmen were barred from the proceedings. Pictures in Havana newspapers showed row after row of prisoners in white shirts and denim trousers seated in the basketball court within the compound of Principe Prison.
