France, Spain, Portugal and Italy to explain why they blocked President Evo Morales' jet

Bolivia has summoned the ambassadors of France, Spain, Portugal and Italy to explain why their countries blocked President Evo Morales' jet last week.

Mr Morales was flying home from Moscow when his plane was forced to reroute to Vienna, amid rumours that US fugitive Edward Snowden was on board.

Mr Snowden, a former CIA contractor, is wanted by the US on charges of leaking secrets about US surveillance schemes.
