Fidel Castro Believed to Have Terminal Cancer

Cuban leader Fidel Castro is believed to have terminal cancer and is unlikely to return to power, Time magazine reported, citing US government officials.Despite remarks by Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque that Castro “continues to recover (and) we will have him back leading the Revolution,” Time reported on its website that many US officials are now convinced that Castro has terminal cancer and will never retake the reins of the Americas’ only communist-ruled country. “Certainly we have heard this, that this guy has terminal cancer,” a US official told the magazine on condition of anonymity.
