Chavez returns home after cancer treatment in Cuba

(AP) CARACAS, Venezuela - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has returned home after 11 days of cancer treatment in Cuba.

State television showed Chavez chatting with his vice president and other aides after arriving at Caracas' international airport late Friday.

Chavez traveled to Cuba on April 30 for further radiation therapy.

The socialist leader began the treatments late March after an operation in February that he says removed a second tumor from his pelvic region. The first tumor was taken out in an operation last June.

Chavez said Friday that his latest round of radiation treatment was successful.

He has kept some details of his illness a secret.
