LOOK: Jeep Carrying Castro's Ashes Breaks Down During Funeral Procession
The antiquated Jeep carrying deceased Cuban dictator Fidel Castro's remains broke down during a funeral procession that marked the end of nine days of official mourning in Cuba.
Before and after the mechanical impediment, throngs of people looked on and cheered as Castro's procession passed them by.
The Russian-made jeep ferrying Castro's ashes broke down and needed to be pushed on Saturday en route to the late leader's final resting place.
The breakdown of the jeep in the midst of adoring crowds chanting "Long live Fidel!" was symbolic of the dual nature of Castro's Cuba.
While his legacy inspires fierce adulation by many of the nation's citizens, others continue to grumble about Cuba's autocratic government, inefficient bureaucracy and stagnant economy.
Since the Communist nation has been cut off from the United States and other countries since Castro unseated the previous leader Fulgencio Batista in 1959, a good portion of the island's infrastructure has somewhat frozen in time.
The jeep had to be pushed by Cuban soldiers to Castro's interment site.
Castro died late last month at the age of 90.
