This is from CNN: Chile. This is a rough translation:
Guillermo Cochez, a Panamanian politician, says the president of Venezuela is deceased.Here is the video that CNN aired. Note: it is in Spanish:
Talking with CNN Chile, the former ambassador said that on December 30 President Chavez had been declared brain dead in Cuba, returning to Venezuela eventually in that state. Therefore Chavez could not have been visited by the various leaders who reportedly met him...
The information obtained by the former diplomat says are "sources within the Venezuelan government" and that is information that has been circulating for weeks...
Guillermo also said Chavez died four days ago and asked her daughters to disconnect the ventilator which was connected to survive.
This is a picture that is circulating, purporting to be Chavez dead. We cannot independently verify it, however:
