Via the BBC: Hugo Chavez coffin arrives at Caracas museum
The BBC’s Abraham Zamorano in Caracas says it is not yet clear what will happen to Mr Chavez’s body in the longer term.
Mr Maduro asked the National Assembly to reform the constitution to allow Mr Chavez’s body to be buried in the National Pantheon, together with the most important leaders in Venezuela’s history.
Mr Chavez, for his part, had said he wanted to be buried in his hometown in Barinas.
After Friday’s ceremonies, the country’s Information Minister, Ernesto Villegas, said the government had dropped plans to embalm Mr Chavez for permanent display.
