• Fidel Castro makes first public appearance


    HAVANA: Cuba’s former president and revolutionary icon Fidel Castro has made his first public appearance in 14 months, local media reported Saturday. The state-run newspaper Granma said Castro had this week met with a Venezuelan delegation that had been invited to the communist island. Granma published four photographs on its website of the 88-year-old Castro seated inside a bus or van and shaking the hands of supporters leaning in through the vehicle’s windows. The bearded leader was wearing a blue-and-white tracksuit, a black cap and a hearing aid.
