CARACAS, Venezuela - Hundreds of supporters of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez are rallying outside his presidential palace in an alternative inauguration, showing their support for the ailing leader and wearing T-shirts with the slogan "I am Chavez."
Supporters waved flags while upbeat music from Chavez's last presidential campaign blared from speakers with the words: "Chavez, heart of the people!"
The government organized the unusual show of support for the cancer-stricken leader on what was supposed to be his inauguration day. A swearing-in ceremony has been indefinitely postponed.
