Venezuelans begin emotional farewells to Hugo Chavez

The coffin of Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez was taken to a military academy where he will lie in state for three days, as throngs of weeping supporters swarmed Caracas streets to bid farewell.

Hundreds of thousands waved flags and chanted "Chavez lives" as his hearse crawled across the capital yesterday in a seven-hour trip from the hospital where he died to the academy he once called his second home.
