Venezuela's Chavez: "I'm pro-Internet"

President Hugo Chavez denied on Sunday that he planned to censor or limit the Internet in Venezuela, saying on the contrary Web use had shot up more than nine fold during his decade in power.
The South American leftist leader's calls a week ago for greater controls on the Internet brought an outcry from opposition and freedom of information groups. Some said he was planning controls similar to his allies Cuba, China and Iran.
