Fidel Castro Appears in Public for First Time in Over a Year

Official media reported on Saturday that Former Cuban President Fidel Castro, 88, appeared in public "full of vitality" for the first time in more than a year on Monday, greeting a delegation of Venezuelans. It was his first known appearance outside his home since Cuba in December agreed to normalize relations with the United States, Castro's longtime adversary. President Barack Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro, Fidel's younger brother, announced they would re-establish diplomatic ties, opening a new era in the previously turbulent relations that arose after the Castros came to power in 1959.
