Jose Enrique Dausa, mentioned in some editions Thursday as one of the 22 Cuban exile fighters aboard a boat that drifted at sea 16 days after the failed Bay of Pigs

invasion in 1961, issued a statement Thursday to clarify a report of cannibalism among the 12 survivors. ``The truth is . . . that four members of that group on the

boat did not participate in that act of cannibalism,'' Dausa said. He identified the four as himself, Nelson Torrado, Armando Lopez Estrada and Angel Gonzalez.

Another survivor, Julio Pestonit, had disclosed the incident in an interview with the Fox News Channel.
