Cas­tro ap­pears in public

Los Angeles Times - - THE WORLD -

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.
