Three Nicaraguan websites have posted new photos of Fidel Castro using a hospital-style wheeled chair during meetings in Havana with President Daniel Ortega last year.
The 12 color photos were posted Monday by El 19, La Voz del Sandinismo and El Pueblo Presidente, all sites with close ties to Ortega's leftist party, the Sandinista Front for National Liberation.
El Nuevo Herald could not independently authenticate the photos. If confirmed, they would be the first time Castro is shown in a wheelchair since he underwent emergency surgery in 2006. The Cuban media reported on the Ortega-Castro meetings last year.
A short text posted with the photos on all three sites says the snapshots were taken during two Ortega visits to Cuba in April and December, but does not specify how many times they met. From the clothes worn, it appears the photos were taken during three meetings.
