The ashes of former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro were set to be buried Sunday morning at an invitation-only funeral.

The streets of Santiago were still lined with supporters as Castro's ashes were transported to the Santa Ifgeñia cemetery. He will be buried next to Jose Marti, a Cuban revolutionary leader from the 1800s.

Castro's death on Nov. 25th sparked nine days of national mourning.
