Members of the US Congress have held a rare meeting with the former Cuban leader, Fidel Castro, describing him as very engaging and energetic.

It is Fidel Castro's first known meeting with visiting Americans since he had surgery in 2006.

His brother, the current president, Raul Castro, earlier told the delegation that he was ready to end 50 years of hostility with the United States.

Michael Voss reports from Havana.
