The Associated Press has sent the following stories on Fidel Castro's death:

CUBA-CASTRO-FUTURE

HAVANA — As weeping Cubans mourn a man who shaped every aspect of life in modern Cuba, many privately hope his passing will pave the way for faster and deeper changes in a country frozen in time with severe economic troubles. By Michael Weissenstein and Andrea Rodriguez. SENT: 800 words, photos, videos.

With: CUBA-CASTRO-FUNERAL PLANS. SENT: 330 words.

CUBA-OBIT-FIDEL CASTRO

Fidel Castro, who led his bearded rebels to victorious revolution in 1959, embraced Soviet-style communism and defied the power of 10 U.S. presidents during his half-century of rule in Cuba, has died at age 90. By Michael Weissenstein and Peter Orsi.

CUBA-FIDEL CASTRO-A LIFE

Fidel Castro's revolution was slowly dying — or so it seemed. Communism had collapsed in Europe, and Cuba's Soviet lifeline was severed. Food was in short supply. A lack of diesel choked the rumble of Russian-built trucks, and factories rusted in the tropical heat. The title of an American book seemed just right: "Castro's Final Hour." Yet the Cuban leader refused to give up on the revolution he had unleashed three decades before. By Paul Haven and Peter Orsi.
