HAVANA, Cuba – Former long-time 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 the capital of Havana.
Cubadebate last Friday published four images that show Castro sitting inside a vehicle, each with a different person stretching an arm through the window to shake his hand. Castro’s face is largely obscured by a dark-coloured baseball cap. He sports longish grey hair and a beard.
The website said the encounter occurred last Monday but did not explain the delay in publishing the photos.
Castro will turn 89 on August 13. He was last seen in public at the inauguration of an artist’s studio in January 2014. (AP)
