Cuban Rafter: 10 Years

Source: AP News Agency

La Havana (AP) – Elian Gonzalez became an adolescent with short hair, who studies in a military school and is a delegate of the young communists, ten years after he was the center of a judicial and political dispute between the United States and Cuba.

The webpage of the official Cubadebate showed photos of the boy during the ninth Congress of the Union of Young Communists, that took place in the Cuban capital over the weekend.

Sixteen year old Gonzalez seldom goes out in public and on this occasion he did so between the delegates of the party meeting wearing the olive-green uniform that characterizes the students in the pre university military schools.

With a long face, black hair and an intense gaze, the youth appeared very serious and sat among his compatriots.
