April 23, 1959
Seeming quite amused, Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro holds up a newspaper headlining the discovery of a plot to kill Castro here, April 23rd. Castro was at the Overseas Press Club at the time. Police said five brothers had been sent here from Philadelphia, Pa., to assassinate the bearded leader. Police said that three other men, including a sixth brother, were believed to be in New York in connection with the plot to kill Castro. Earlier in the day, when asked about a reported assassination attempt, Castro had replied, 'In Cuba, they had tanks, planes and they run away. So what are they going to do here? I sleep well and don't worry at all.'
