Documents show agency’s plans to assasinate Cuban president “gangster style”.
He has been seen in occasional photographs and videos with visiting foreign leaders and has produced a steady of columns and essays printed by state media over the past six months.
Castro’s closest ally, Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan president, said on Friday his political mentor had undergone several blood transfusions and had almost died.
He did not make clear if he was talking about a recent relapse or if he was recounting complications that Castro suffered after undergoing emergency surgery more than a year ago.
During a visit to Brazil’s Amazon city of Manaus, Chavez told reporters: “Fidel is well; clearly he has not finished his recovery. He has a little problem there but he can live like this another 100 years.”
