More Tests For Chavez

News Americas, CARACAS, Venezuela, Tues. Oct. 11, 2011: Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez says he has to undergo more tests said to evaluate his cancer treatment.

On Monday Chavez disclosed he will return to Cuba next week for more tests.

“I’ll be in Cuba next week because they have to conduct very rigorous examinations that are possible thanks to Cuban technology,” said Chavez, speaking during a brief telephone interview broadcast on state television.

Chavez finished four rounds of chemotherapy treatment in Cuba last month after undergoing surgery in Cuba in June to remove a tumor from his pelvic region.
