Fidel Castro accuses US of torturing Cuban spy

HAVANA – Fidel Castro accused US authorities Friday of torturing a convicted Cuban spy, telling a meeting of communist youths that the agent had been placed in solitary confinement in California.
At the meeting was former castaway Elian Gonzalez, now 16, who could be seen listening intently to the ex-Cuban president when footage of the closed-door session aired on state-run television Friday night.
Castro, who turns 84 on August 13, is suddenly making near daily appearances in and around Havana, after spending four years almost completely out of the public eye following emergency intestinal surgery that forced him to cede power to his younger brother Raul.
