Tough Times Pose Economic Challenges For Cubans
Nearly 50 years after revolution brought Fidel Castro to power, Cuba's infrastructure is in shambles. Agricultural production has plummeted, and many ordinary Cubans say daily life has become a struggle to survive and feed their families.

Cuba will remain socialist
Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro says the Caribbean Island will remain socialist amid calls by the West to ratchet up its reform process.

Fidel blasted the West on Sunday for the ongoing world financial crisis.

"We are not a developed capitalist country in crisis, whose leaders are going crazy today looking for solutions amid depression, inflation, the lack of markets and unemployment; we are and should remain socialists," the 82-year-old former president said in a published commentary, EFE news agency reported on Monday.

Chavez stops in Cuba, meets with Fidel Castro
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez made his second whirlwind visit to Cuba in less than a week and met behind closed doors for two and a half hours with ailing former leader Fidel Castro, state media reported Sunday.

Chavez's stopover had not been previously announced, but the Communist Youth newspaper Juventud Rebelde said he landed in Havana Saturday evening and left hours later. He was greeted at the airport by 77-year-old Raul Castro, who succeeded his brother as president in February.

The newspaper published a photo of Chavez shaking hands with a serious-faced Raul Castro. There were no images of the ailing, 82-year-old Fidel, who has not been seen in public since undergoing emergency intestinal surgery in July 2006.
