President Hugo Chavez returned home to Venezuela late Wednesday after his latest round of cancer treatment in Cuba.
The Venezuelan leader greeted well-wishers at an airport in Caracas, waving, shaking hands and kissing some on the cheek before he was whisked away to the Miraflores presidential palace.
Unlike his previous arrivals from Cuba, Chavez didn't spend time on the tarmac answering questions at length.
His return to Venezuela comes as the country marks the anniversary of a 2002 coup that briefly removed Chavez from power. The state-run AVN news agency reported that he was expected to take part in events commemorating the failed coup.FULL STORY
