One of the defining leaders of the 20th century, Fidel Castro, who has died at the age of 90, was seen as both pariah and people's champion.
He led a coup in 1959 to overthrow the regime of the US-backed former Cuban president Fulgencio Batista, and remained hostile to Washington throughout his life.
Castro survived countless assassination attempts, including an exploding cigar, and ruthlessly jailed many political opponents. He also led the world to the brink of nuclear war in the 1960s.
Castro stepped down as Cuba's president 10 years ago after suffering a severe gastrointestinal illness, and before his 90th birthday in August he told supporters he expected to die soon.

President Obama has described being in Cuba as "wonderful" after becoming the first US President to visit the country in 88 years.
Speaking shortly he said his visit would be a "historic opportunity to engage with the Cuban people".
President Obama braved a 'tropical downpour' on the first day of his official three-day state visit to Cuba.
Accompanied by his family Obama grabbed an umbrella and set off to see sights, including the Museum of the City of Havana, as he tried to squeeze as much into his short but historic trip as possible.
The visit marks the first US presidential trip to Cuba in 88 years.
