Havana Aqueduct Damaged by Bomb


Special to The New York Times

            HAVANA, Jan. 20—A bomb damaged the big main of the Havana Aqueduct just outside the city Wednesday night, Mayor Justo Luis de Pozo disclosed today.

            He said the aqueduct was losing 5,000,000 gallons of water daily, and while repairs were being made as rapidly as possible some sections of downtown Havana could be without water except at certain hours most of this week.

            A bomb exploded at First and Twelfth Streets in the Vedado residential section last night, seriously wounding Mario Cambras, 28. He told the police he had made the bomb. The police said he had just been discharged from a hospital for nervous diseases.


            SANTIAGO, Cuba, Jan. 20 (UP)—Relatives were permitted for the first time today to visit three young revolutionaries captured a week ago after a mountain-top rendezvous with Fidel Castro, rebel leader.

            They said the prisoners, Armando hart, 25, Antonio Buch, 39, and Javier Pazos, 21, were in good physical condition. The rebels had charged that the captives had been tortured.
