Venezuela: Recording of 'kidnapped' Chavez is fake, president says

Venezuela's president says right-wing opponents have unleashed a new weapon in their push to destabilize his government and demoralize his supporters: an imitation of Hugo Chavez's voice.
An audio recording widely circulated on social media purports to be the late Venezuelan leader saying he's still alive.
The recording comes nearly seven months after authorities announced Chavez's death from cancer and just a few months before municipal elections in the politically polarized South American country.
President Nicolas Maduro said Saturday that the recording implying that Chavez has been kidnapped is fake, and he isn't taking it lightly.
