Three days of mourning for Chavez

St. John’s Antigua- The country is to observe three days of mourning for Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez who died after a two-year battle with cancer on Tuesday. Flags across the nation will also be flown at half-mast in tribute to the flamboyant leftist leader, described by the Prime Minister as a “positive symbol of hope” for the region. PM Baldwin Spencer, in making the announcement last night, said the Caribbean owed Venezuela a “debt of gratitude” in return for Chavez’s generous fiscal policies which pumped money into several struggling nations.
