Chavez Back To Cuba For Treatment


Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez will have further medical treatment in Cuba, where he had months of specialist therapy for cancer.

Chavez, who was re-elected in October, is due to be sworn in for a third term in January.

Venezuelan congress president Diosdado Cabello said Chavez would have hyperbaric oxygen therapy and physiotherapy.

He said the treatment was necessary after a tough electoral campaign.

Chavez was first diagnosed with an undisclosed cancer in 2011.

He has since had repeated surgery in Cuba, but finished his treatment there earlier this year.


VOR, or the Voice of Russia, was the Russian government's international radio broadcasting service from 1993 until 2014, when it was reorganised as Radio Sputnik.
