Cuba's former president Fidel Castro, one of the world's longest-serving and most iconic leaders, has died aged 90.
His younger brother and successor as president Raul Castro announced the news on state television.
Castro toppled the government in 1959, introducing a Communist revolution. He defied the US for decades, surviving many assassination plots.
His supporters said he had given Cuba back to the people. Critics saw him as a dictator.

Ashen and grave, President Castro told the nation in an unexpected late night broadcast on state television that Fidel Castro had died and would be cremated later on Saturday.
"The commander in chief of the Cuban revolution died at 22:29 hours this evening (03:29 GMT Saturday)," he said. "Towards victory, always!" he added, using a revolutionary slogan.
There is to be several days of national mourning on the island.

it will be interesting to see what happens now but I suspect a steady change back to capitalism will now happen

There will certainly be a lot of partying in miami for a few weeks !

Castro killed 10,000 opponents. Without trial.

Of course his son was elected into his post - oh my mistake, he wasn't.

Castro banned the internet in Cuba.

And all those politicians in this country and others currently praising Castro should remember, nobody actually elected him either.

I think you will find that Raul is his brother, not his son.

One of my all time heroes he liberated his country from a MAFIA supported dictator where murder of innocents without trial was commonplace well over 2 million :evil: where 8 year old children were forced into prostitution where poverty and destitution were rife, with no health care for the majority :evil:

Fidel shot 10000 scum =D> =D> sent troops to Tanzania and Zambia earning the lasting gratitude of Nelson Mandella gave the Cubans a better health service than the USA/education iS the highest in Latin America literacy is far in excess of Mexico Brazil etc

VIVA FIDEL DEATH TO THE YANKEE IMPERIALISTS =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>
