Chavez chats with TV station


Is it the end of the world for Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez? Hopefully it is not. But if it really is, this is something beyond our control.

From an exclusive report, HDNet's Dan Rather was told that 57-year old leader is now suffering metastatic rhabdomyosarcoma as his cancer has entered the end stage. As revealed by an official whose name was not disclosed, Chavez is now not expected to live a couple of months.

The incumbent president, who is running for a re-election this October, where he vowed to win, has been treated three times in Cuba. He reportedly spent nearly three weeks in Havana Carfor the removal of another tumor believed to be a recurrence of the same tumor which was removed from his pelvic area in June last year.

This is a breaking news. More updates to follow.
