Supporters of Hugo Chavez gather at a hospital in Venezuela, where the president is being treated after a surprise return from Cuba.

Oil minister Rafael Ramirez was among top officials visiting Chavez at the military hospital in Caracas.

The president has been away for more than two months undergoing cancer surgery.

The absence threatened his 14-year leadership - but now supporters hope he can return to active rule.
