Cuba’s state TV has announced that its former president and leader of the Communist revolution Fidel Castro, has died at the age of 90.

It provided no further details.

Fidel Castro ruled Cuba as a one-party state for almost half a century before handing over the powers to his brother Raul in 2008.

His supporters praised him as a man who had given Cuba back to the people. But his opponents accused him of brutally suppressing opposition.
