Ulises Estrada, a Cuban revolutionary who aided Ernesto Che Guevara's campaigns in Africa during the 1960s, has died, the official Cuban newspaper Granma said Tuesday. He was 79.
Estrada, who died Sunday, held important posts in the Cuban Interior Ministry over the years, performing "sensitive missions" related to Latin American guerrilla movements in the 1960s, Granma said.
He was the lover of the East German-born communist revolutionary known as Tania, nee Tamara Bunke, who was killed fighting alongside Guevara in Bolivia in 1967.
