A statute of the late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has been unveiled in the Bolivian city of Riberalta by his friend President Evo Morales.
For many in Bolivia’s Amazon basin the Venezuelan leader is revered for using his country’s oil revenues to help Morales fund numerous social programmes.
Morales who is Bolivia’s first indigenous president had formed a close bond with Chavez who died last March, often calling him “older brother”.
