CARACAS - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said he will return to Cuba to begin radiation treatment for cancer on Sunday, but that he was in good shape and would return home in several days.

At the end of last month, the 57-year-old socialist leader had a third operation in Havana in less than a year to remove a malignant tumor from his pelvis.
