A poster with the image of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is seen in the populous Petare slum in Caracas on January 4, 2013. Hugo Chavez’s top aides have gone on the offensive, accusing the opposition and media of waging a “psychological war,” as Venezuela’s cancer-stricken president battles a serious lung infection. The closing of ranks followed a high-level gathering of top Venezuelan officials in Havana with Chavez, amid growing demands to know whether he will be fit on January 10 to take the oath of office for another six-year-term.
