CARACAS - Smiling and embracing supporters, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez flew home on Friday after surgery in Cuba for cancer that will require him to have radiation therapy ahead of October's re-election bid.

Chavez's presence on Venezuelan soil after an absence of more than three weeks in Havana should reassert his leadership, calm anxiety among supporters and quell whispers of a brewing succession struggle behind the scenes.

Yet little is known about what kind of cancer Chavez has or how serious it is. So big questions remain as to whether he is fit enough to campaign for an Oct. 7 election that has turned into the biggest political fight of his 13-year rule.
