Hugo Chavez completes cancer treatment

  • Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has returned from Cuba after completing a course of radiotherapy for cancer.

    Chavez’s low profile over recent weeks has raised speculation that his condition may be more serious than revealed.

    In February, surgeons successfully removed a lesion in Chavez’s pelvic region.

    He had surgery in the same area last year to remove a cancerous tumour.

    Chavez, who has been in power since 1999, has insisted he will run for president again in elections due to be held in October this year.
