Rumors of Mariela Castro’s death surface, then quickly prove false

WITCH UNDER HOUSE

Add this one to the long, long list of moments when Cubans have briefly received news of a death in the dragons' den, that is, the Castro royal  family.

Today, for a very brief instant, it seemed that Queen of drag queens Mariela Castro was one of the passengers on the doomed Algerian flight that disappeared over the Sahara desert.

Some who heard the news began to sing the "Ding Dong" song, along with the Munchkins of Munchkin Land ..you know, that song..... But their singing stopped very quickly.

From ABC News:

An earlier report cited the Facebook page of the Ouagadougou airport identifying one of the passengers as Mariela Castro, the niece of former Cuban leader Fidel Castro. ABC News has confirmed that she was not on that flight.

From El Nuevo Dia:

"Estoy vivita y coleando, feliz y saludable (...) sinceramente no entiendo cuál es el show", dijo riendo la sobrina de Fidel Castro en un contacto con el canal Telesur desde La Habana.

("I am alive and kicking, happy and healthy...and I don't really understand what all the fuss is about," said Fidel Castro's niece in Havana, smiling, in an exchange with the television network Telesur.")
