Chavez Allies Knew He Was Dying in December, Correa Says

Hugo Chavez’s allies knew he was dying last December, even as his government insisted he would recover in time to be sworn in as president earlier this year, according to Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa.

Former Cuban President Fidel Castro told Correa the facts after the Ecuadorian leader visited Chavez at his hospital in Havana on the eve of his fourth operation in 18 months to treat an unspecified form of cancer.
