Report: Raúl Castro says he'd like to visit Miami, then laughs


Cuban leader Raúl Castro has no interest in visiting the White House but would like to come to Miami, according to a report in a television station in Panama.

Castro spoke to reporter Glenda Umaña, formerly of CNN en Español, in a hallway at the Summit of the Americas over the weekend. She recorded part of the exchange on her cellphone, and later discussed the conversation with station Telemetro Panama.

The portion about Miami wasn't recorded. But Umaña wrote on Facebook that Castro laughed after telling her about coming to Miami -- so perhaps his response was all in jest.
