Fidel Castro launches memoirs

1:51 pm on 5 February 2012

Former Cuban president Fidel Castro has made a rare public appearance to launch his memoirs.

The book, Guerrilla of Time, is almost 1000 pages long and describes his childhood and rise to power in the Cuban Revolution.

Fidel Castro, 85, says it is every Cuban's duty to fight until the last moment for Cuba, the planet and humanity.

He has not been seen in public since April last year.
