Chavez aims to nationalise exclusive island

Venezuelan president wants to welcome all to north coast island known for yachts and jets.

    Hugo Chavez, the Venezeulan president, has made nationalising private industry one of the main tasks of his presidency.

    Now the man who called for a revolution in his nation wants to do the same for a Caribbean beach resort.

    Since 2002, the Chavez government has taken over almost 1,000 foreign and domestic companies. Now he has his sites set on the exclusive island of Los Roques.
