A warm welcome as Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez arrives in Cuba late Saturday for chemotherapy treatment. Cuban President Raul Castro greeted Chavez and his daughter as they stepped off the plane in Havana. The fifty-six-year-old Chavez has delegated limited powers to his subordinates in his absence. Chavez has not said what type of cancer he has or said how long he will be out of the country. Deborah Lutterbeck, Reuters
