HAVANA (Reuters) - Acting Cuban President Raul Castro appeared in public for the first time on Sunday, receiving Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, Cuban state television images showed.

Chavez arrived in Havana to visit his political ally Fidel Castro on his 80th birthday. The Cuban leader relinquished power to his younger brother Raul on July 31 due to stomach surgery.
