VENEZUELAN EL PRESIDENTE HUGO CHAVEZ IS BACK, BUT THOSE WHO FAILED TO TOPPLE HIM THIS TIME ARE SURE TO TRY AGAIN

Videotape footage, shown to the National Assembly in Caracas 17 April, suggests that snipers fired at Chavez supporters as well as at his opponents as the two groups converged in a march the previous Thursday that precipitated his short-lived ouster.
