Video: A look back at the Castro years in Cuba
Issued on: Modified:
A new chapter is beginning in Cuba, with the country's National Assembly meeting to elect a new president. Raul Castro is stepping down from his position as head of state after serving two five-year terms. It's the end of a 59-year reign by the Castro brothers as well as for a whole generation of revolutionaries. Our reporters take a look back at the past six decades on the island.
A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett and James Vasina.
