Hugo Chavez's body to stay on display in Venezuela

The body of the late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is to be embalmed and put on display after his funeral, Vice-President Nicolas Maduro says.

The decision reflects the huge crowds queuing to pay their respects in Caracas, where he is lying in state.

Mr Chavez's body will be moved to a military museum after the state funeral on Friday, Mr Maduro said.
