Children carry portrait as the caravan carrying Cuba's late President Fidel Castro's ashes arrives in Santiago de CubaBy Diego Oré and Sarah Marsh SANTIAGO, Cuba (Reuters) - President Raul Castro led tens of thousands of Cubans on Saturday in a pledge to defend the socialist legacy of his brother Fidel Castro, who died last week aged 90 and will be interred in the city where they launched the Cuban Revolution. "This is the unconquered Fidel who calls us with his example," the president, dressed in his four-star general's uniform, told a crowd that had burst into chants of "I am Fidel." "Yes, we will overcome any obstacle, turmoil or threat in the building of socialism in Cuba," said Castro, 85, in a speech before Santiago's packed central plaza. Raul Castro was joined on the stage by leftist foreign dignitaries and the Cuban political leadership to bid farewell to the man known to most Cubans as "El Comandante" - the commander - or simply "Fidel." His ashes will be entombed near the remains of Cuba's independence hero Jose Marti in a cemetery in the eastern city.
