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

State television showed images of Chavez arriving at Caracas' airport early Friday and walking down the steps of the presidential jet.

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.

The Venezuelan leader has spent much of the past 18 months fighting cancer, and said several months ago that he was cancer-free.
