Chavez bans body exhibition

VENEZUELAN President Hugo Chavez closed a traveling exhibition of dissected cadavers, "Bodies Revealed," and branded it evidence of the world's moral decomposition.

Shows such as "Bodies Revealed," which display preserved cadavers, have sparked ethical debates around the world. They have also raised questions about the origin of the bodies and whether people gave permission for their cadavers to be used. "We are in the midst of something macabre," Chavez said on his weekly TV show at the weekend. "They are human bodies. Human bodies! ... This is a really clear sign of the huge moral decomposition that is hitting our planet."
