World Bulletin / News Desk

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez was sent home to die after doctors in Cuba could do nothing more for him, Spain's ABC newspaper reported.

The 58-year-old leader is now receiving palliative care after doctors determined no viable cancer treatment would improve his health, the newspaper said, citing sources in contact with Chavez's medical team.

Palliative care focuses on relieving and preventing a patient's suffering.

ABC is widely considered a newspaper of record in Spain.
