The Associated Press plans the following stories on the death of Fidel Castro in addition to coverage of spot developments:
Former Cuban President Fidel Castro, who led an improbable rebel victory, embraced Soviet-style communism long after the collapse of the Soviet Union and defied the power of 10 U.S. presidents, has died at age 90. By Michael Weissenstein and Peter Orsi.
CUBA-FIDEL CASTRO-A LIFE
Fidel Castro’s revolution was slowly dying — or so it seemed. Communism had collapsed in Europe, and Cuba’s Soviet lifeline was severed. Food was in short supply. A lack of diesel choked the rumble of Russian-built trucks, and factories rusted in the tropical heat. The title of an American book seemed just right: “Castro’s Final Hour.” Yet the Cuban leader refused to give up on the revolution he had unleashed three decades before. By Paul Haven and Peter Orsi.
