Thousands of Cubans took the streets of Havana to celebrate the 89th birthday of former Cuban President Fidel Castro on Thursday. Many people gathered at the city's Ciudad Deportiva stadium to watch a special birthday performance with dancers and athletes. In a birthday address, Castro condemned US policy, saying that the country owes Cuba “many millions of dollars” because of the half-century American trade embargo.
