Accused sex tourist handed over to U.S.



Cuba announced yesterday it had handed a U.S. citizen accused of travelling abroad to have sex with children over to the United States in a rare sign of judicial co-operation between the two countries. The Cuban foreign ministry said it had deported Leonard Auerbach, 61, a California mortgage banker who arrived in Cuba in April. He was pursued by U.S. authoritie­s on charges of repeatedly going to Costa Rica to have sex with minors and possession of child pornograph­y.
