Hugo Chavez death: Thousands march with coffin

Help

Thousands of people have come out onto the streets of Venezuela's capital Caracas to pay tribute to President Hugo Chavez, who died on Tuesday.

A procession accompanying Mr Chavez's coffin took more than six hours to reach the Military Academy where he will lie in state until Friday.

The government has announced seven days of mourning for the president, who died aged 58 after 14 years in the post.
