Fidel Castro's sister has denied rumors that the former Cuban leader suffered a massive stroke and was on the brink of death, the Venezuelan media said.

The U.S. Spanish-language newspaper Nuevo Herald quoted on Friday Venezuelan doctor Jose Marquina as saying that Fidel Castro had suffered a "massive embolism of the right cerebral artery" and had trouble eating, speaking, or recognizing people.
