CUBA (WTXF) - Cuban dictator Fidel Castro was laid to rest after more than a week of mourning and a nationwide tour with his ashes.
His ashes were placed inside a tomb at the Santa Ifigenia Cemetery in Santiago. Sunday’s ceremony came on the ninth day of official mourning. The dictator ruled the communist nation for decades before stepping aside in 2008. Just last year, President Obama moved to normalize relations with Cuba after decades of severed ties.
