Bolivian Jet Rerouted Amid Suspicions Snowden on Board

"Bolivia reacted with fury after a plane carrying the country's president home from Russia was diverted to Vienna amid suspicions that it was carrying the surveillance whistleblower, Edward Snowden," The Guardian reports.

"France and Portugal were accused of withdrawing permission for the plane, carrying the president, Evo Morales, from energy talks in Moscow, to pass through their airspace."

Said Bolivian foreign minister David Choquehuanca: "We don't know who invented this lie. We want to denounce to the international community this injustice with the plane of President Evo Morales."
