Famed Cuban despot Fidel Castro, who led the nation for decades before giving way to his brother Raul, has died. He was 90 years old.
As we’ve seen, Cubans who lived through Castro’s reign are celebrating his death — and the celebrations have continued all night in Miami as more people heard the news (below):

Castro’s death is clearly meaningful to a lot of people who either lived under his reign, or had family members who escaped Cuba to avoid Castro’s rule.
2016 — it’s been a hell of a year.
Even Donald Trump had his say (below):
Fidel Castro is dead!
