Grandmothers of Elian Gonzalez to Come to U.S. Friday Afternoon

Aired January 21, 2000 - 9:39 a.m. ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

BILL HEMMER, CNN ANCHOR: Breaking news now to talk about, the developing stories surrounding six-year-old Elian Gonzalez. CNN has just learned that the National Council of Churches are saying today that it, quote, "expected "its delegation to return from Havana, Cuba, this afternoon, Friday afternoon, returning to New York with the two grandmothers of Elian Gonzalez. Again, this word just coming in a short time ago. The information we have, according to the Council of Churches on its recording in New York City, is that that plane will arrive, a Learjet, with the two grandmothers this afternoon.

Also, in Miami, Florida, keep in mind, the attorney for the boy's relatives said the two grandmothers are invited to come to south Florida and visit Elian Gonzalez to, quote, "see how well he is doing at this time."

Again, what we're understanding right now: The two grandmothers expected in New York midday, today. We'll see what fallout is from this, and we'll check in with Cuba throughout the morning as well.
