US to fund dissidents.

WASHINGTON -- In a move likely to further aggravate Cuban leader Fidel Castro, US Senators Jesse Helms (R-NC) and Joseph Leiberman (D-CT) have introduced a bill that would provide $100 million in assistance over four years to dissident groups in Cuba. There are many questions about how the money, which is supposed to be spent for computers, faxes, food and other supplies, would be distributed and who would get it. The dissident movement in Cuba is very small and closely watched.
