HAVANA (AP) — Cuba has published the first photos of Fidel Castro in five months, showing the 88-year-old former leader engaged in conversation with a university student.

Ten photos of Castro appear on the website Cubadebate. In the images, Castro is seated and discussing current events with the head of the main Cuban student union. A first-person account by student leader Randy Perdomo Garcia says the meeting took place on Jan. 23.

The photos published around midnight on Monday are the first images of the revolutionary leader since a set of photos came out in August showing him talking with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.
