Venezuela's Chavez getting better, official says

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez was gradually recovering and handling more presidential duties, a government official said Tuesday.

"He's constantly thinking, making decisions, in meetings he's been giving out orders," the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation Jorge Arreaza, said on Venezuela state TV.

Chavez, 58, has not made a public appearance since undergoing a fourth cancer surgery in Havana more than a month ago.
