President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday greeted the news that Fidel Castro had diedby denouncing Cuba’s longtime leader as a “brutal dictator” with a legacy of bloodshed. Trump, who vowed to help the island nation’s people achieve freedom and prosperity, did not explicitly repeat campaign-trail promises to roll back President Obama’s historic outreach to the island nation.

Obama declared that now was the time to “extend a hand of friendship to the Cuban people” and largely sanitized deep Cold War-era criticisms of Castro’s record on human rights and economic freedom. “We know that this moment fills Cubans — in Cuba and in the United States — with powerful emotions, recalling the countless ways in which Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation,” the president said. “History will record and judge the enormous impact of this s…

The Communist revolutionary Fidel Castro has died at the age of 90, it was confirmed today. Castro led Cuba for decades and transformed the country into one-party socialist state.

It sparked the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962 leading to fears of all-out nuclear war between the Soviet Union and the US. The CIA reportedly attempted to assassinate Castro on an incredible 638 occasions. Here, 3m360 looks back at his life and how he survived numerous attempts on his life.
