Condolences poured in from world leaders who had found common cause with Chavez in his 14-year campaign to galvanize the Latin American left and defy US 'imperialism.' Chavez, 58, died after a long battle with cancer, plunging Venezuela into an uncertain future after 14 years of rule by the charismatic former paratrooper, a standard-bearer of Latin America's 'anti-imperialist' left.
