They were among a group of 31 persons, including eight women and seven children, who escaped the island in a 33-i'oot boat last week and sailing Florida four-day journey. There are approximately 10,000 Soviet troops in the Caibarien zone alone, the freedom fighters— who declined to permit use of their names—said. They said Russians command troops in tracking down rebel forces, and there also are "foreign troops" used. "Some of them look like Mongolians," one of the arrivals said. "The Russians use Cuban militia uniforms and also Cuban army uniforms/' he added.

The Cubans said they had "very reliable reports" of a new rocket base being set up near Mabulla between the towns of Mayajigua and Chambas on the Las Villas- Camaguey provincial border. "A huge tunnel—big enough for trucks with rockets to drive through—has been constructed beneath the main highway at Sierra Suela farm near Caibarien," the leader of the freedom fighter group said.
