Cubans were scheduled to begin massing on Havana's Revolution Square from Monday for a weeklong commemoration of Fidel Castro, the guerrilla leader who led a revolution in 1959.

Castro died on Friday night at the age of 90, a decade after stepping down due to poor health and ceding power to his brother Raul Castro.

Castro was cremated on Saturday and his ashes will be carried in a cortege to a final resting place in Santiago de Cuba, the birthplace of the revolution, on Dec 4.
