The man who survived numerous American assassinations attempts and ten presidents, resisted US Imposed sanctions and won the whole world recognition
FIDEL CASTRO has died, aged 90. He ruled Cuba for 47 years, ceding power to his brother Raúl in 2006 before officially resigning in 2008. Revered on the anti-imperialist left, the Communist revolutionary survived numerous American assassination attempts and ten presidents. His rule was notable for world-class health care and education, political repression—and marathon speeches, including a record four hours 29 minutes at the UN.
