Made in Havana?

You know those rather persistent rumours about Fidel Castro’s impending demise?

Well, here is an intriguing assessment, courtesy of the US State Department.

According to this AFP report, a departmental spokesman, Gonzo Gallegos, told reporters that the latest round of rumours on the health of the 81-year-old dictator may have been started by the Castro regime.

“I would say that the Cuban government has always been very good at stirring the nest whenever they felt the need to,” said Mr Gallegos.

He is right about that.
