Chavez says Cuban cancer tests were successful

LA FRIA, Venezuela (Reuters) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez returned from Cuba on Thursday, declaring cancer tests after four rounds of chemotherapy had been "successful."

"A vital stage has concluded," he said in an address to Venezuelans after touching down in a western state where he plans to make a pilgrimage to a Catholic shrine.

"We will live and we will continue living."
