Former longtime 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 on 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-colored baseball cap. He sports longish gray hair and a beard.
The website said the encounter occurred Monday, but did not explain the delay in publishing the photos.
