According to information received directly from Cuba, Castro is on the fifth floor of CIMEQ, a hospital located in the outskirts of the City of Havana.
Hours before the news broke; one source with connections in Cuba told The Miami Herald that no one had been allowed into or out of the CIMEDQ state security hospital in Havana since Sunday. Employees could not leave at shift change and incoming staffers were not allowed in.
No news about Castro's condition after surgery Little was known of Fidel Castro's condition Tuesday after the Cuban dictator underwent an operation and temporarily turned over the leadership of the country to his brother Raul, who is 75 years old and has been an alcoholic for most of his adult life.
The surprise announcement that Castro had been operated on to repair a "sharp intestinal crisis with sustained bleeding" stunned Cubans on the island and in exile, and marked the first time that Castro, two weeks away from 80th birthday, had relinquished power in 47 years of absolute rule.
