Need to Know News: 'Snowquester' shuts down Washington, snarls air travel; Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez's death leaves many questions

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For March 6, 2013 – 'Snowquester' shuts down Washington, snarls air travel, Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez's death leaves many questions and a tardy Justin Bieber angers fans...

'Snowquester' shuts down Washington, snarls air travel: "They're calling it 'snowquester.' A winter storm that set snowfall records in Chicago arrived in the capital region early Wednesday, forcing federal offices in Washington and school districts around the area to close - hence the play on 'sequester,' the forced spending cuts making the rounds in government."

• Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez's death leaves many questions: "The death of the longtime charismatic but controversial leader, Hugo Chavez on Tuesday leaves many unanswered questions that Venezuela and the world must now grapple with."

Syrian exodus reaches 1 million: "The number of Syrians who have fled their country since the civil war began almost two years ago reached 1 million Wednesday, the U.N. refugee agency said."

First furlough notices go out: "The first furlough notices for government employees have gone out. The Army has started sending out hundreds of letters to unions - including on Feb. 28 and March 1 to the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Gunpowder, Md., as well as the Corps of Engineers in Walla Walla, Wash. - warning that employees will be forced to stay at home without pay one day each week from April 22 through Sept. 21."

• A tardy Justin Bieber angers fans: "Singer Justin Bieber kept thousands of fans and their tired, outraged parents up way past their bedtime Monday after arriving on stage nearly two hours late for a sold out show at London's O2 Arena."

    Piers, How dare you put Hugo Chavez in a positive light ? This man was evil. This man is the devils wing man. This man bad mouthed our President on US soil. KARMA!!! God gave him that cancer after that speech he gave at the UN. Talk to an educated Venezuelan person before you come to your conclusions. They will tell you what really went on there for the last 14 yearsl

      Remover your blinders please. The Devil has been Bush and by his wizardry he still not been charge for his war crimes. He took our beautiful young men and women to war based on lies looking for WMD and returned them back home in BODY BAGS. Lets not forget over 6 million innocent civilians he has killed. They sure were not your son's and daughters were they?
      Free media will be a good thing.
