5 Dec, SANTIAGO DE CUBA- Former Cuban president Fidel Castro was buried in a “simple” funeral in the eastern city of Santiago de Cuba on Sunday, a French minister who attended the ceremony told AFP.
“There were no speeches. It was very simple. There were just the ashes that were interred, the family, the government and officials,” French Environment Minister Segolene Royal said after the hour-long funeral at Santa Ifigenia cemetery, which was closed to the public. (AFP)
