Venezuela grapples with housing crisis

Despite massive investments in housing, thousands of people are still waiting for new homes.

    After 13 years in office, Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez is running for re-election again in October.

    But aside from accusations of corruption and meddling in the armed forces, he is also facing a housing crisis, caused by landslides two years ago.

    Although the government is investing billions of dollars in housing, for many, it is an excercise that is taking far too long.
