At only five years old Elian Gonzalez has managed to challenge just about everything in the last week: Fidel Castros communism, the open sea, and now, international law.

Cuba has demanded the boys return filing an official complaint with the United Nations charging his mother who died during the trip, kidnapped the boy. And now his father wants him back.
For now, US Customs officials have released the boy into the custody of an uncle, but admit his ultimate fate is uncertain a wrinkle in US/Cuba relations that hasnt been tested before.
SOT, JAMES RUBIN, STATE DEPARTMENT SPOKESMAN:

Its fair to say t he disposition of this case might ultimately be decided by the courts. LEE COWAN:
The case could pose a serious challenge in balancing US family law, with immigration law Do the wishes of the boys biological father take precedence over human rights concerns and who decides? A State or Federal Court? SPENCER EIG, FAMILY LAWYER: Even in international law, the best interest of the child is what's important.
