Back from the dead

Just when you thought it was safe to let the kids out of the house ...

Cuban television has broadcast new footage of Fidel Castro - the first such pictures in more than a month.

In an all-too obvious effort to quash rumours inside and outside the island that the ailing 80 year old dictator was near death (or probably dead already), Castro was shown walking unassisted, reading a copy of Granma and pretending to give orders on a wall phone.

But he warned - again - that his recovery would be long and "not without risk".
