Havana, Sep 13 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Raul Castro on Sunday headed the homage the Cuban people is paying to Commander of the Revolution Juan Almeida Bosque, who died on Friday night.
The president, accompanied by Almeida's relatives, put a flower near the image of the outstanding revolutionary fighter at the Revolution Square's Jose Marti Memorial hall, where the ceremony develops until this evening.
So did Commanders of the Revolution Ramiro Valdes and Guillermo Garcia, as well as the rest of the members of the Political Bureau of the Cuban Communist Party's Central Committee.
A Guard of Honor escorts the image, while thousands of Cubans have been paying tribute since very early today to the commander who was linked to all transcendental events of the revolutionary process.
The burial will take place later next week at the memorial site of the Third Guerilla Front in the province of Santiago de Cuba.
