Cuban students’ react to Fidel’s Castro’s death

Thousands of Cubans throughout Miami-Dade and elsewhere celebrated the death of former Cuban leader Fidel Castro on Saturday, some between study sessions at Florida International University.

Students at the college’s main campus near Sweetwater are preparing for upcoming final exams and projects, but some said they were distracted by the news of the longtime dictator’s death.

“I am glad in a way, but sad that I am happy that someone died. It had to be done. It was his time,” said psychology student Marianela Padron, who migrated from Cuba six years ago.
