Is Fidel Castro dead, more rumors the Castro has died

A new wave of rumors that the leader of communist Cuba Fidel Castro is dead hit the Internet.

Is Fidel Castro dead, more rumors the Castro has died There has been an increased number of speculations that the leader of Cuba, Fidel Castro, has died. It all started with the celebrity blogger known under the alias "Perez Hilton" who announced on August 13th, the 81st birthday of Castro, that the Cuban leader may be dead. At that time nothing more was mentioned, such as sources of the rumor, but that was enough spark to start a giant Internet fire.

 According to the blogger, "Sources reveal exclusively to that U.S. officials will be holding a press conference shortly to announce the death of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. South Florida police organizations are calling in reinforcements before the announcement is made, we're told."

 The fact that Fidel Castro had not appeared in public for over an year just added extra fuel to the fire. Earlier last week, Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque stated that Castro is still alive and is in the process of recovering. U.S. officials also deny they have any information that Fidel Castro is dead, but admit there have been reports his health is deteriorating.

 So far the death of Fidel Castro remains a rumor, unconfirmed by either the Cuban nor the American governments.
