Chávez goes to Cuba again for more chemotherapy

Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez says he is beginning a fourth round of chemotherapy treatment in Cuba.

Before leaving for Cuba Saturday, Chávez said the treatment will likely be his last as he prepares to make a full recovery.

Initially, President Chávez went to Cuba in June to have a cancerous tumor removed from his pelvic area.

He returned to Cuba twice for chemotherapy treatments before receiving his third treatment at a Venezuelan hospital earlier this month.

Chávez has vowed to be fit for his bid for another six year term in next year’s election.
