Venezuela has declared a week of mourning after the death of president Hugo Chavez on Tuesday.
After 14 years as the country's socialist leader, Chavez passed away following a battle with cancer.
Chavez will lie in state for three days before being given a state funeral on Friday.
Schools, universities and other institutions will be closed so Venezuelans can pay their respects.
Already there has been a huge outpouring of grief across the country.
