Miami residents take to the streets to celebrate news of Fidel Castro's death Former Cuban President Fidel Castro Dead at 90 Fidel Castro, one of the most outsized personalities of his era, has died at age 90, his brother Raúl Castro announced on Cuban television Friday night. The communist leader antagonized 11 United States presidents and cast a uniquely long shadow over American politics, especially in Florida, where many Cubans refugees who fled the island turned the name "Fidel" into an epithet. His ability to thrust his small, impoverished nation on the world stage was unrivaled. In 1962, the Cuban Missile Crisis pitted the U.S. against Russia, threatening the world with the specter of nuclear war. And under Castro, Cuba exported revolution across Latin America and around the globe, helping to ignite civil wars whose consequences are still felt today. To millions of his supporters, he was an icon of social justice who aimed to turn Cuba into a model of universal education and free health care for every citizen. But he was reviled by countless others, who saw him as an unrepentant tyrant, concerned principally with his iron grip on power. He would only relent in 2008, when he transferred the presidency to his brother Raúl, the current president. Raúl, in announcing his brother's death, said that Fidel would be cremated Saturday, and that funeral details would forthcoming.
