Guardian Unlimited | World Latest | Chavez Reassures Venezuelans He Is OK: "CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) - President Hugo Chavez appeared at a televised Cabinet meeting Monday and reassured worried supporters that he was fine and there was nothing to rumors that swirled around his disappearance from public view in recent days.

Chavez showed up for the meeting Monday afternoon, saying he had canceled his weekly radio and TV show Sunday and had gone to visit his 7-year-old daughter Rosines at her academy in the city of Barquisimeto in western Venezuela.

``Nothing has happened to me,'' Chavez said, laughing. ``Rosines had kidnapped me.''

Turning his comments to hundreds of concerned supporters that had gathered outside the palace, Chavez said it was all just ``rumors'' that something had happened to him.

He urged them to go home. ``The country is completely calm,'' he said."
