Cubans, world commemorate Fidel Castro’s life and death

Monday, 28 November 2016

Cubans will celebrate Fidel Castro’s life at mass gatherings this week as the Caribbean country highlights the path Castro took during the revolution he embodied six decades ago.

The funeral for the longtime leader will be next Sunday, December 4, at Santa Ifigenia cemetery in Santiago de Cuba, the island’s second largest city and site of the putative beginning of the Cuban Revolution in 1953.
