Cuba and Biological Weapons

NPR's Gerry Hadden reports from Havana. Last night in Cuba, in a live televised speech, Cuban leader Fidel Castro vehemently denied American accusations that Cuba is trying to develop biological weapons, and saying his country has nothing to hide. The allegation came on Monday from Undersecretary of State John Bolton. Castro called on the U.S. to "present even the most minimum proof" of the allegation.
