Party time

Phew! And here you were thinking the postponed celebrations to mark Fidel Castro’s 80th birthday would not go ahead after all.

With Castro seriouslly ill and out of public view since late July, there has been plenty of speculation the dictator will not be around to take part in the celebrations being organised in his honour by the regime “and friends from around the world”.

Fear not.

The official Cuban newsagency, Prensa Latina, reports this morning that the celebrations will most certainly go ahead, stretching from 28 November to 1 December.

There will be a huge concert, photographic exhibitions, a meeting of “great thinkers” from around the globe to discuss Castro's "legacy to humanity" … You name it.

There is just one little problem - the guest of honour.

Asked whether Castro himself would attend any of the festivities, a spokesman for the organisers, Alfredo Vera, said no one knew for sure.

"We do not know if Fidel will attend since this will depend on his health condition at the time,” Vera replied.
