The death of Cuban leader Fidel Castro on Friday has prompted many to reflect on his impact on the world.

Praising Castro as "a great figure of our times", President Xi Jinping said the Chinese people have lost a "close comrade and sincere friend". Extending his condolence to Cuban President Raul Castro, Premier Li Keqiang hailed him as "the founder, defender and propeller of China-Cuba ties".

In the Cuban capital of Havana, people from all walks of life took to the streets to pay tribute to the leader of the Cuban revolution and founder of the Cuban Communist Party.
