President Raul Castro has said power in Cuba is being gradually transferred, in a speech at celebrating 60 years since the start of the revolution.

The revolutionaries were giving way to a new generation who would keep socialist ideals alive, Mr Castro said.

But the BBC's Sarah Rainsford in Havana said that the main focus of his speech was on history and contained "no new message".
