Fidel Castro, the political firebrand and revolutionary leader, died Friday in Cuba after years of failing health, according to multiple media reports. He was 90.

Reports Reuters:

A towering figure of the 20th century and Cold War icon, Castro stuck to his ideology beyond the collapse of Soviet communism and remained widely respected in parts of the world that struggled against colonial rule.

Castro had been in poor health since an intestinal ailment nearly killed him in 2006. He formally ceded power to his younger brother, Raul, two years later.

Wearing a green military uniform, a somber Raul Castro, 85, appeared on state television on Friday night to announce Fidel’s death, 60 years to the day since the two brothers and a few supporters left Mexico on a boat to bring revolution to Cuba.

Cuban exiles in Miami’s Little Havana neighborhood celebrated the news Saturday, notes NBC News.
