Cuban Official Denies Castro Rumors
Posted on Aug 24, 2007
Though he’s been laying low for the last year after undergoing intestinal surgery, Cuban leader Fidel Castro (pictured) is still well enough to remain in charge of his country, according to Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque, despite rumors that his health is rapidly deteriorating.
U.S. senior officials said that while there are reports on setbacks in Fidel Castro’s health, there are no indications that his death is imminent.
Nothing unusual has been reported from Havana. However, Miami is ablaze with rumors, NBC News reported.
