DOW JONES NEWSWIRES
The New York Stock Exchange suspended trading in the 4 1/2% bonds of the
Republic of Cuba due June 30, 1977, effective immediately.
The issue has been halted and unavailable for trading since July 6, 1995.
The suspension and the Exchange's planned delisting application is the
result of the Republic's defaulted status of debt securities, the length
of time that trading has been halted, and other reasons, the Exchange said.
