CARACAS, Venezuela (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - World leaders, athletes, and left-wing celebrities attended the funeral Friday for former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

A line of people gathered to see Chavez's body lying in state in Caracas.

It was a carnival atmosphere outside with music from bands and an orchestra.

More than 30 political leaders stood at attention in front of the flag-draped coffin.

They included Cuba's Raul Castro, and Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Vice-President Nicolas Maduro became acting President the moment Hugo Chavez died, and can now run for President.
