KHAWAJA UMER FAROOQ

Cuba mourning Castro


Cuban students waving flags broke into a mass chant of "I am Fidel" to salute Fidel Castro as nine days of mourning began for the Cold War icon, who dominated the island's political life for generations. Alcohol sales were suspended, flags flew at half-staff and shows and concerts were cancelled after his younger brother and successor, President Raul Castro, told the country on Friday that Fidel had died at 10:29pm, without giving a cause of death. Giant rallies are planned in Havana's Revolution Square and in the eastern city of Santiago to honour Castro, who died aged 90, six decades after the brothers set out from Mexico to overthrow the government of Fulgencio Batista.
