Venezuela opposition holds big rally

Hundreds of thousands of supporters of opposition leader, Enrique Capriles, throng Caracas' streets.

    The death of Venezulean President Hugo Chavez was a second chance of sorts for opposition leader, Enrique Capriles.

    Next week he will run again to lead his country, and thousands poured into the streets of the capital, Caracas, to support a rally in what's a government stronghold.
