About 300 people have gathered outside the Cuban embassy in Mexico to mourn the death of Fidel Castro.

Chanting "Cuba Si, Yankee No!", the crowd carried white flowers and Cuban flags. Some left flowers outside the embassy gates.

Some choked back tears, as they listened to speakers and musicians playing songs like "Playa Giron."

Castro, who led a rebel army to improbable victory, embraced Soviet-style communism and defied the power of 10 U.S. presidents during his half century rule of Cuba, died at age 90 in Cuba late Friday.
