The trial of a Cuba-born former CIA operative accused of lying to U.S. authorities during an immigration hearing has been suspended for a day because the Texas courthouse closed due to snow.

The trial of Luis Posada Carriles was suspended Wednesday due to
bad weather in the El Paso area and is expected to resume on
Thursday.

The 82-year-old anti-communist militant is charged with 11
counts of perjury, obstruction and immigration fraud. He is accused
of lying during immigration hearings about how he sneaked into the
U.S. in 2005, and for failing to acknowledge his role in a series
of 1997 hotel bombings in Havana.
