Cubans in the exile community waited to hear news about Fidel Castro's health after Cuban officials announced the head of Cuba had temporarily relinquished presidential power to his brother Raul due to intestinal illness. "This is a clear reminder that the end of the Castro regime is approaching, and that the only solution is free elections and the rule of law," said US Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart of Miami, late Monday night. The Cuban leader said he had suffered intestinal bleeding, apparently due to stress from recent public appearances in Argentina and Cuba, according to the letter read live on television by his secretary, Carlos Valenciaga.
