BBC News - Spain 'told Edward Snowden was on Bolivia president's plane'
Spain and other European countries were told that US whistleblower Edward Snowden was on board the Bolivian president's plane earlier this week, the Spanish foreign minister has said
The incident has been widely condemned by President Morales and several other South American countries, who have demanded an apology from the countries involved.
The Bolivian president blamed Washington for pressurising European countries into refusing him passage, and threatened to close the US embassy in La Paz.
"We have dignity, sovereignty. Without America, we are better off politically and democratically," he said.
Bolivia went as far as saying that if this had been done the AIR Force One it would of been seen as an act of war and that they will not hesitate to close the US embassy if this aggression continues. How many more toys are the US going to throw out of the pram before this is over?
