Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez said Saturday that US President George W. Bush may be seeking to kill him for calling him "the devil" at the United Nations. "Some worried friends over there have called me (to say) that because I called him the devil they have condemned me to death," Chavez said without elaborating further on his sources. "But they won't kill me. I have faith in life," he said. "I know how to take care of myself and the Lord will protect me and you all will protect me," he told a cheering crowd in eastern Venezuela where he was visiting a group of state-funded agricultural cooperatives. Chavez's incendiary remarks Wednesday against Bush have elicited a sharp backlash.
