Nicaragua's President Daniel Ortega and his wife Rosario Murillo visit the tomb of Venezuela's late president Hugo Chavez during the first anniversary of his death in Caracas March 5, 2014. Followers of Venezuela's late socialist leader Hugo Chavez flooded the streets on Wednesday to mark the anniversary of his death, a sad but welcome distraction for his successor who has faced a month of violent protests. A year after Chavez succumbed to cancer, his self-proclaimed 'son,' President Nicolas Maduro, faces the biggest challenge to his rule from a month-long explosion of anti-government demonstrations that have led to 18 deaths.
