HAVANA (AP) — Cuban President Raul Castro has participated in the interment of two other siblings after overseeing the final farewell for his brother Fidel.

Raul Castro on Tuesday oversaw the interment of the ashes of their late brother Ramon and sister Angelita at the family farm in the eastern community of Biran, near the city of Santiago where he presided over the interment of Fidel's ashes on Sunday.

The Communist Party newspaper Granma reported Wednesday that their sister Emma accompanied Raul Castro during the private service.

Ramon died in February and Angelita died in 2012. Fidel Castro died on Nov. 25 at age 90.

Biran was founded by the Castros' father Angel, a Spanish immigrant.
