Chavez back home from Cuba after treatment

The ailing Venezuelean president intends to run for re-election in October.

    Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan president, has returned to Caracas after 11 days of cancer treatment in Cuba.

    The popular president, who seeks to run for re-election for a six-year presidential term in October, has been undergoing radiation treatments in Cuba since late March.

    He was operated on in February to remove a second tumour from his pelvic region.

    Al Jazeera's Adam Raney reports from Caracas.
