Venezuelans are preparing to head to the polls Sunday to nominate a challenger to President Hugo Chavez in what analysts say is likely to be the country's closest election in 14 years.
Opposition presidential candidates participated Monday in a nationally televised debate for the first time in more than a decade, criticizing leftist leader Hugo Chavez and promising jobs ahead of next year's election.
Police in Mexico City said Monday that they found two severed human heads on a street near the capital's main military base.
A third prominent opposition politician, former Chacao Municipality Mayor Leopoldo Lopez, announced his candidacy late last month.
The group "is in the best position of the past 10 years" to challenge Mr. Chavez in the Oct. 7, 2012, elections, Mr. Lopez said.
