Castro appears in public
HAVANA — Former longtime Cuban President Fidel Castro has appeared in public for the first time in more than a year, official media reported.
The Cubadebate website says Castro greeted a group of Venezuelans visiting Havana, the capital.
Cubadebate published four images that show Castro in a vehicle, each with a different person stretching an arm through the window to shake his hand, his face largely obscured by a baseball cap. He sports longish gray hair and a beard.
Castro will turn 89 on Aug. 13. He was last seen in public at the inauguration of an artist’s studio in January 2014.
