Supporters of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez celebrate after pictures of the ailing leader surrounded by his daughters in Havana where released to the public, in Caracas on February 15, 2013. Chavez was seen bed-ridden but smiling in photos released Friday that gave a jittery nation a first glimpse of him since his fourth round of cancer surgery in December. The total of four images — of Chavez holding Thursday’s edition of the official Cuban communist party newspaper Granma — broke a virtual news blackout for Venezuelans living in a state of limbo without their once media-happy and larger than life comandante.
