GUNSHOT TO HEAD COSTS DRIVER MOST OF SIGHT By Damián Abreu Pérez, Cuba Free Press.

CIEGO DE AVILA - On November 17, an armed guard from "La Cuba," a multiple crop farm enterprise, stopped a bus of the local transportation system at the town of La Carrera.

The guard carried a double-barrel shotgun and set about to check the passengers' packages in search of illegal vegetables or other products. One of the passengers refused to give up his packages. During the discussion, the shotgun exploded as it was pointing toward the driver's face.

The driver, Antonio Rodriguez, 28, was taken to the Dr. Antonio Luaces Iraola provincial hospital in serious condition, with multiple shot wounds to the face and one hand. He lost one eye and the other is severely damaged.
