Sept. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez
called President George W. Bush ``the devil'' and ``world
tyrant'' in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly in
which he urged the member governments to fight U.S. domination.
``The devil came here yesterday,'' Chavez, 52, said in
remarks that included accusations that the U.S. is plotting to
overthrow him and that the UN is helpless to combat the threat
posed by U.S. power. He said the podium in the General Assembly
hall still ``smells of sulphur today,'' a reference to what is
termed the devil's element in mythology.
