CUBA :Granma Publishes Fidel Castro Interview.
In a rare 5-page interview published Tuesday in the state run newspaper Granma...aged former dictator Fidel Castro...complains about his knees, failing eyesight and growing old.
Some experts claim that Castro is now in his 88th year...though his official bio had him turning 86 last August.
Castro praises his brother Raul...for bringing the state 'up to date'...and Venezuela's Hugo Chavez for neglecting his health...because 'he dedicated himself to the fight.'
