Hugo Chavez completes cancer treatment
May 12 , 2012
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.
