Reports say Castro's son, 68, kills self

The eldest son of the late Cuban leader Fidel Castro killed himself on Thursday night, according to multiple reports.

"I have the painful task to announce to our country that our comrade, Fidel Castro Diaz-Balart has died".

Cuba Debate website said, "Diaz-Balart, who had been attended by a group of doctors for several months due to a state of profound depression, committed suicide this morning".

The 68-year-old Castro Diaz-Balart was initially hospitalized for depression and continued his treatment after he was released.

Castro Diaz-Balart was also called by the public "Fidelito", or Little Fidel, because he looked like his father very much.

Fidelito was Castro's only child with former wife Mirta Diaz-Balart.

His relatives include U.S Representative Mario Diaz-Balart and former USA congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart, some of whom were prominent figures from the Cuban-American exile community who were enemies to the late Cuban leader.

His parents divorced before his father Castro took power in Cuba.

Fidelito also played a key role in developing Cuba's first nuclear plant. In 2013, Castro Díaz-Balart said that he had once studied in the Soviet Union under an assumed name and that few people knew who he was. He, however, had received medical treatment as an outpatient for depression in recent months before he chose to take his own life.

Fidelito's death comes just over a year after that of his father on November 25, 2016, at age 90.
