PHOTOS: Cuba gathers for final farewell to Fidel Castro
A national day of mourning, three days after the death of Fidel Castro, tens of thousands of Cubans are in Havana's Plaza of the Revolution as they prepare to say goodbye to the man who ruled their country for nearly half a century.
Across a hushed capital, people wept in the streets on Saturday as news of Castro's death spread. While many mourned, others privately expressed hope that Castro's passing will allow Cuba to move faster toward a more open, prosperous future under his younger brother President Raul Castro.
