Cuban government media reports that Dr Fidel Castro Diaz Balart, Fidel Castro's eldest son, has killed himself.

As's Nikhil Lakshman reported: 'A dead ringer for his father, Dr Castro was speaking with Ali Chegini, the Iranian ambassador to Cuba and Rajasekhar's neighbour, when rather rudely interrupted the conversation, saying, "I had hoped to meet your father when I came to Cuba, but I am glad to meet you Sir."'

'Speaking in American-accented English, Dr Castro shook his head and said, "It is not the same thing," before turning to tell Ambassador Chegini that he had been to Tehran three times, ignoring the Indian reporters milling around him.'
