Exile Community Jubilant

Miami- Cuban exile groups began celebrating this morning in Miami shortly after reports of Cuban President Fidel Castro's death were confirmed by Cuba's state news agency. Traffic in Miami is at a standstill, but the crowds seem peaceful and law abiding. Police have reported only a few minor disturbances. Nevertheless, Mayor Manuel Diaz has called for calm in the city, and reportedly anticipates that the celebration could go on for several days.
