Former Cuban president Fidel Castro dies

People have started pouring out onto the streets to lament – and celebrate – the death of former Cuban president Fidel Castro.

The 90-year-old revolutionary leader’s death at 10.29pm on Friday, after a long battle with illness, was announced on state television by his brother and current Cuban President, Raul Castro.
