Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez visits Cuban leader Fidel Castro in the hospital. The photo was released by the official Cuban newspaper Granma, Aug. 14, 2006.

The first photographs of Fidel Castro since news of his illness appeared over the weekend. Sunday was Castro's 80th birthday, and he cautioned Cubans in a letter that he faced a long recovery from surgery and advised them to prepare for "adverse news."

Steve Inskeep talks to Gary Marx, Havana bureau chief for the Chicago Tribune.
