Cuban leader Fidel Castro reacts as he attends Elian Gonzalez's 9th birthday activities, Cardenas, east of Havana, Friday, Dec.06, 2002. Life has never been the same for the child since an ill-fated attempt to take him to the United States left his mother dead and made him the focus of an international tug-of-war between relatives in Miami and his father in Cardenas. On the right is Miriam Janet Martinez leader of the Cuban Pioneers. (AP Photo/Jose Goitia)
