Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro has died aged 90.

The Communist revolutionary's death was announced on Cuban state television in the early hours of Saturday by his brother Raul, the country's current president.

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 was going to die soon.
