Hugo Chavez Photos Emerge Following Two Month Absence

For over two months, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has disappeared from the public eye, the result of his shaky health following a December 11 cancer surgery in Cuba.

On Friday, Venezuelan state TV released photos of the ailing Chavez, smiling alongside his two daughters, still in Cuba.

According to Information Minister Ernesto Villegas, Chavez is breathing through a tracheal tube and has difficulty speaking. The released photos can be seen below.
