A member of the presidential guard, top, places a flower on the coffin containing the body of Venezuela's late President Hugo Chavez as it is taken from the hospital where he died, to a military academy where it will remain until his funeral in Caracas, Venezuela, Wednesday, March 6, 2013. Even in death, Chavez's orders were being heeded. The man he anointed to succeed him, Vice President Nicolas Maduro, will continue to run Venezuela as interim president and be the governing socialists' candidate in an election to be called within 30 days.
