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.
Thousands of people turned out to bid farewell to Fidel Castro as the former Cuban leader's ashes began their final journey.
Raul Castro and South American leaders were among those who attended a massive evening tribute to the late Cuban president.
Kim Jong Un, leader of North Korea, has paid his respects to Fidel Castro, former leader of Cuba.
