Fidel Castro in Prominent TV interview

HAVANA (AP) - Fidel Castro is speaking slowly, but appears
relaxed and cogent in his most prominent television interview in
years.
The 83-year-old former president talked about the conflict between North and South Korea at the start of an interview Monday on the "Mesa Redonda" - or "Round Table" - a daily Cuban talk show on current events.
It was a rare appearance for a man who has stayed largely out of the public eye since a serious illness four years ago forced him from power.
The first photographs of the revolutionary leader in a public forum were published on Saturday, when images of him greeting workers at a Havana think tank appeared in Cuban media.
Castro has shunned the spotlight since undergoing emergency intestinal surgery in July 2006.
