Fidel Castro's ashes were interred on Sunday at a cemetery in the southeastern city of Santiago - the cradle of the Cuban revolution - with the military firing a 21-gun salute for their fallen leader.

Initially the act at the cemetery was due to be carried live on television, but hours before official media announced it would be "solemn and private".

An urn containing Castro's ashes was brought by soldiers to the cemetery of Santa Ifigenia in Santiago, 800km south-east of Havana. Thousands of people lined the road, waving Cuban flags and shouting "Long live Fidel!".
