Lying in State – Russia frets over breathing statue of Lenin, Venezuela promises to display Chavez’s body “forever”

(via Criticismism)

Meanwhile in Venezuela the body of Hugo Chavez is to be displayed “forever” in a glass coffin. CNN discusses – and provides a picture gallery – of embalmed world leaders.

Wether or not the feisty Venezuelan was assassinated or not – and the US calls such claims “absurd” – we link to Greg Palast’s BBC documentary “The Assassination of Hugo Chavez” here.

We also link to the Wikipedia page on “Lying in State” here.
