Venezuelan VP: Chavez Fighting for His Life

Venezuela's vice president says President Hugo Chavez is fighting for his life as he continues treatment for cancer.

Vice President Nicolas Maduro appeared on television Thursday to update the nation on Mr. Chavez's condition.

The president entered a Caracas hospital 10 days ago after spending two months in Cuba. He missed his inauguration for a fourth term in January because of poor health.

A photograph of a smiling Chavez lying in a hospital bed with two daughters standing beside him was released two weeks ago. It is the only public image of Mr. Chavez since December.

The Venezuelan government has given little information on Mr. Chavez's illness or condition other than saying he has a cancer in his pelvis.
