Miguel Diaz-Canel: Cuba's post-Castro president

Miguel Diz-Canel,new president of Cuba

Cuba has formally announced Miguel Diaz-Canel as the country's new president.

The 57-year-old father of two was elected president of Cuba on April 19 after Raul Castro, who led the country for 10 years, stepped down.
