The newspaper said that Chavez was not facing immediate death, but noted his situation is “complicated,” according to American intelligence sources.

Chavez was last seen in public on June 9th. He was rumored to be in Cuba for treatment after suffering from prostate cancer…

Venezuelans are accustomed to near daily speeches and television appearances by Chavez that can last several hours, even when he’s traveling abroad.
