Leaders of Cuba's leftist allies and other developing countries descend on Havana on Tuesday for a mass rally commemorating Fidel Castro, the rebel who seized power in a 1959 revolution and ruled the island for half a century.Cuba announced nine days of mourning after his death, including the mass rally on Tuesday evening in Revolution Square -- the same massive space where Castro once held fiery, marathon speeches.All schools and government offices will be closed on Tuesday so that Cubans can more easily join the rally and other activities to pay homage to Castro, authorities said.Raul Castro and his top lieutenants held a separate, private ceremony on Monday, laying white flowers in front of Fidel Castro's portrait.
