Cuba’s Fidel Castro Dies at 90
President Raul Castro said that Fidel’s remains will be cremated as per his wishes, and that in the coming hours, details will be provided to the public about the organization of a homage to the departed leader

HAVANA – Cuban leader Fidel Castro has died at the age of 90, his brother, President Raul Castro, said in an address on state television late Friday.

“With profound pain, I am here to inform our people, the friends of the Americas and the world that today at 10:29 p.m. on Nov. 25, 2016, the commander in chief of the Cuban Revolution Fidel Castro Ruz passed away,” a visibly emotional Raul Castro said.

The president added that Castro’s remains will be cremated as per his wishes, and that in the coming hours, details will be provided to the public about the organization of a homage to the departed leader.

The last images of Fidel Castro are from Nov. 15, when he received President Tran Dai Quang at his residence, and the last time he was seen at a public ceremony was during his 90th birthday celebrations at the Karl Marx Theater in Havana.

Since then, he also received other leaders, including Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and Algerian Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal at his residence.
