More than 70,000 Cubans have paid their last respects to Ernesto "Che" Guevara in Havana, and thousands more are expected to file past a small wooden casket containing the remains of the leftist guerrilla killed 30 years ago. The weekly youth communist newspaper Juventud Rebelde said that by late on Saturday, the first day the remains were on display, some 72,000 people had filed past. The caskets containing the remains of Guevara and six former comrades-in-arms will be on display until tonight at the Jose Marti memorial in Havana's Revolution Square.
