Terror suspect may go free

Luis Posada Carriles, a Cuban exile named in the 1976 bombing of a Cuban airliner that killed 73 persons, could be released from a jail in New Mexico unless federal authorities appeal a pending $350,000 bond or move to place him in immigration detention.
Posada, 79, is a Cuban-born Venezuelan national, anti-Castro militant and former CIA operative wanted in Venezuela to face charges in the airline bombing. He is being held by U.S. authorities after being arrested in May 2005 on charges of illegally entering the United States. Posada is accused of lying on an official application about how he entered the country.
