A supporter of Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez attends a celebration marking the leader's return, in Bolivar Square, in Caracas, Venezuela, Monday, Feb. 18, 2013. The woman holds a cutout image of Chavez along with a Saint Judas statue and a note that reads in Spanish: "Thank you St. Judas," because she believes her prayers to the Catholic saint helped in the return of the ailing president. Chavez returned to Venezuela early Monday after more than two months of medical treatment in Cuba following cancer surgery, and was being treated at the Carlos Arvelo Military Hospital in Caracas, his government said.
