FILE - In this Feb. 4, 1997 file photo, Hugo Chavez, a retired army lieutenant colonel who led a coup attempt in 1992, waves to people gathered in Caracas Square to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the failed coup in Caracas, Venezuela. The coup attempt sent shock waves through Latin America, since oil-rich Venezuela is one of the region's oldest democracies and for years was considered a model for Third World economic development. The girl is unidentified. Venezuela's Vice President Nicolas Maduro announced on Tuesday, March 5, 2013 that Chavez has died. Chavez, 58, was first diagnosed with cancer in June 2011.
