Since May, 1987, the Miami, Florida metropolitan area has been the site of at least 25 bombings or attempted bombings. Fifteen attacks have been directed against similar targets, i.e., persons or businesses with alleged sympathies or ties to the Government of Cuba. The 15 bombings have involved the use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs), mostly pipe bombs. Some bombing components have been positively linked through forensic analysis. Only one of the 15 bombings has been claimed - by the Organization Alliance of Cuban Intransigence (or Intransigent Cubans) (AIC) - and is listed as a terrorist incident by the FBI. Of the remaining 14 bombings, 12 have been designated as suspected terrorist incidents. (see FBI link below)

Groups and individuals included in TRAC's database range from actual perpetrators of social or political violence to more passive groups that support or condone (perhaps unwittingly) such violence. The spectrum of violence represented by these groups is vast, from Jihadists who bomb train stations to financial institutions that transfer funds. Some groups that originally engaged in violence but have since become legitimate political parties are included to provide historical perspective. TRAC is in no way attempting to determine whether groups or individuals are terrorists -- only to convey reported information about their activities and official State status. While TRAC attempts to ensure the accuracy of its TRAC database, the entries in the database are from numerous different sources. Hence, TRAC cannot and does not warrant the accuracy of the entries in its database. The editors of TRAC may modify these entries at any time and welcome comments and suggested corrections or additions.
