The ailing Fidel Castro is not dying, but recovering from an illness, his younger brother and Cuba's acting president said Sunday, responding to rumors that the leader was on his deathbed. "He is not dying like some of the press in Miami is saying," Raul Castro, who has been standing in for his brother since he stepped down July 31 to recover from intestinal surgery, told a youth congress in Havana. "He is constantly getting better." The younger Castro said Fidel has a telephone next to him, "and he's using it more and more every day." He said he had a long working session with the leader just two days ago. Raul Castro was responding to recent reports outside Cuba that Castro has terminal cancer.
