Cubans begin paying respects to Fidel Castro

AFP  |  Havana 

Throngs of Cubans began paying their last respects to Fidel Castro in Havana's iconic Revolution Square today, kicking off a week-long farewell to the divisive Cold War titan.

Hundreds of people, many of them lined up since before dawn, began filling the square where "El Comandante" gave many of his most famous marathon speeches, filing past a black-and-white picture of the father of the country's 1959 revolution.
