Elusive Castro misses 88th birthday

Media tributes, a concert and photo exhibition helped mark Fidel Castro’s 88th birthday on Wednesday.

The leader of the revolution hasn’t made a public appearance since January.

Despite stepping down in 2008 for health reasons, Castro still meets world leaders in private – most recently Russia’s Vladimir Putin and China’s Xi Jinping.
