Cuba’s Fidel Castro in first public appearance in months

Elias Jaua shows a picture of his meeting with Fidel Castro

Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro has appeared in public for the first time in months, refuting persistent rumours that he was gravely ill.

Staff at a top hotel in the capital, Havana, said Mr Castro had dropped off a Venezuelan politician on Saturday. Venezuelan ex-Vice-President Elias Jaua confirmed he had had a five-hour meeting with Mr Castro, who is 86. Speculation about Mr Castro’s health has been constant since his brother Raul took over the presidency in 2006. Mr Jaua told journalists gathered at the Hotel Nacional in Havana that Fidel Castro was “very well, very lucid”….(BBC)

SALINAS, Calif. (AP) — A moderate earthquake and minor aftershocks jolted the central California coast over the weekend but didn’t cause any damage, authorities said.

Nearly 6,700 people reported feeling the magnitude 5.3-quake when it struck late Saturday outside of King City, the U.S. Geological Survey said on its website.

USGS geophysicist Don Blakeman said the temblor struck in a “seismically active area” near the San Andreas Fault, about 90 miles southeast of San Jose. It was followed by at least four aftershocks that were greater than magnitude 2.5.

The area where the quake hit is a mostly rural area of rolling hills with large farms and ranches.

A magnitude 5-quake is capable of causing damage — most often knocking things off shelves and making moderate cracks in walls and foundations, the USGS said. The sheriff departments for Monterey and nearby San Luis Obispo counties said they received calls about the earthquake but no reports of damage….

(Reuters) – The Beirut car bomb that killed a top Lebanese security official will probably prove to be the most destabilizing attack in Lebanon since the 2005 assassination of former prime minister Rafik al-Hariri.

What is less clear – and this is something that instills fear in a society still scarred by its 1975-90 civil war – is whether the attack was a reprisal or the start of a campaign of violence by Damascus and its allies, suspected by many Lebanese of trying to spread Syria’s conflict across its borders.

Lebanon, which has yet to fully overcome its own wartime sectarian divisions, is too fragile to withstand being enveloped by a Syrian conflict that is beginning to mirror Lebanon’s own slide into fratricidal bloodletting.

Wissam al-Hassan, the security official who died with seven others on Friday, was buried with full honors in an emotional state funeral on Sunday at the Rafik al-Hariri mosque, the heart of the former premier’s reconstruction legacy in central Beirut.

The funeral turned into a political rally against Syria and its local allies in Lebanon….

(CNN) – With just over two weeks to go until Election Day, and Monday’s presidential debate fast approaching, a new national poll taken after the second debate shows the race for the White House in a dead heat.

The NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released Sunday shows both President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney with 47% support among likely voters. The survey’s margin of error is plus or minus 3.43 percentage points for that group.

– Check out the CNN Electoral Map and Calculator and game out your own strategy for November.

Among the larger pool of registered voters surveyed in the NBC/WSJ poll, Obama holds a five-point advantage, 49% to Romney’s 44%. The margin of error for that larger group is 3.1 percentage points.

The last NBC/WSJ survey – taken before any of October’s presidential debates – showed the president with a slight advantage over his Republican challenger by three points, 49% to Romney’s 46%, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points. The difference in the surveys suggests Obama’s advantage is slipping and that Romney’s debate performances may have had an effect….
