Castro To Make Rare Public Appearance

Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro will make his first major public appearance in years Monday when he discusses the Middle East on a government TV program, the state-run Granma newspaper reported.

It would be the second Castro sighting in the past few days. Three photographs of Castro surfaced Saturday on a pro-government blog, which claimed the photos were taken Wednesday.

The set of three photos apparently show the 83-year-old ailing Castro meeting with people during “a surprise visit” at the National Center of Scientific Investigations in Havana, according to a blog published by columnist Rosa C. Baez.

An additional five photos — appearing to be from the same event — were published Saturday by the state-run media site Cubadebate.

Castro has been largely out of sight since undergoing emergency intestinal surgery in July 2006. He ceded power to younger brother Raul Castro in February 2008.
