Luis Posada Carriles, the Cuban exile leader and CIA agent who targeted Fidel Castro's rule, died early Wednesday morning, his lawyer said.

Posada Carriles, 90, was "sick for some time," said lawyer Arturo Hernández. He had suffered from throat cancer and was injured in a car crash three years ago.

"I'm very sorry," the lawyer said. "At least he tried to do something for Cuba."

Posada Carriles was a controversial figure.

He was considered a hero by many Cuban exiles for his participation in the Bay of Pigs invasion and for attempts to overthrow Castro.

Venezuela closed its consulate in Miami six years ago. Last week President Nicolás Maduro issued an order to open it again. But there’s one big problem: he probably can’t.

The late Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez closed the Miami consulate in 2012, even though South Florida is home to the largest Venezuela community in the U.S. He did so because almost all those expats opposed his socialist revolution.
