Fidel Castro's sister Agustina dies in Cuba at 78


Fidel and Raul Castro’s youngest sister Agustina has died in Cuba at age 78, a family member told.

Juanita Castro tells The Associated Press that Agustina del Carmen Castro Ruz died on Monday at a clinic in Havana.

She said on Tuesday that her sister had recently undergone surgery following a hip fracture.

Agustina Castro was the youngest of seven siblings that included Fidel and Raul.

She never served in the Cuban government and kept a low profile, unlike her brothers and Juanita, who is a prominent member of the Cuban-American activist community in South Florida.

Fidel died in November at age 90, and Raul remains president.
