Bolivia to file legal suit for sea access

Bolivian President Evo Morales has pledged to file a suit at the International Court of Justice to reclaim access to the Pacific Ocean.

A 19th century war with Chile left Bolivia landlocked, but the country maintains a small navy and schoolchildren are taught that regaining access to the ocean is a patriotic duty.
