HAVANA (Reuters) - Ailing Cuban President
Fidel Castro has spoken by telephone to a meeting of Cuban officials,
the ruling Communist Party newspaper Granma said on Saturday in the
first official word on the 80-year-old leader in 11 days.

Castro has not been seen in public since an undisclosed illness forced
him to relinquish power to his brother in July. The last glimpse Cubans
had of him was a video clip released on October 28 that showed a frail
and shuffling old man.

"The Commander in Chief Fidel Castro spoke by telephone to a work
session of the Provincial Assemblies of the People's Power," the newspaper
said in its online edition.

Castro listened to a summary of discussions at the meeting held on Friday
and got a warm round of applause, the newspaper said, giving no further
details.
