"Cubans treat man who killed Che" ...

... is the headline of a BBC article. The Bolivian soldier that drew the short straw when deciding who had to shoot Che Guevara has been treated by Cuban doctors, who removed his cataracts, under a Cuban programme to offer free eye treatment across Latin America.

Never shy to use gratuitous propaganda when they can, the Communist Party's official newspaper Granma (after the boat used for Castro's first 'invasion' - more on that later) wrote that "four decades after Mario Teran attempted to destroy a dream and an idea, Che returns to win yet another battle." "Now an old man, he [Teran] can once again appreciate the colours of the sky and the forest, enjoy the smiles of his grandchildren and watch football games."
