Posada Gives Up Asylum Claim

From the Washington Post:

An anti-Castro militant accused of illegally entering the country withdrew his request for U.S. asylum Wednesday, and his attorneys said they will focus instead on trying to prevent his deportation to Venezuela.

Luis Posada Carriles says he will be mistreated if he is returned to Venezuela to face charges that he plotted the deadly 1976 bombing of a Cuban airliner while he was in Caracas.
