Refuses the US Supreme Court to Review Case of Cuban Five
With this decision, the justices, acting Monday, are leaving in place the convictions of Gerardo Hernandez, Antonio Guerrero, Rene Gonzalez, Ramon Labañino and Fernando Gonzalez internationally known as the Cuban Five - despite calls from

10 Nobel Prize winners and international legal groups to review the case.

The Cuban Five were arrested in 1998 for infiltrating anti-Cuba extremist groups in South Florida that were planning and carrying out terrorist attacks against the Caribbean nation.

In 2005, the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention determined that their arrest was arbitrary.
