Venezuela's Seventh Coup Anniversary

Last weekend marked the seventh anniversary of a short-lived coup
d’etat against Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. But this year, Chavez
supporters have even more reason to celebrate the occasion, since it
coincides with the conviction of officers involved in the coup d’etat
– which claimed as many as 22 lives and knocked Chavez from office for
a brief 48 hours in 2002. Mike Fox has more from Caracas.
