Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has arrived back home in Caracas after 10 days of medical treatment in Cuba.

Chavez was received by members of his Cabinet, including Vice President Nicolas Maduro.

Chavez traveled to Cuba on the night of November 27 after announcing plans to undergo hyperbaric oxygen treatment in Havana.
