Bolivia will file a complaint to UN chief Ban Ki-moon over several European countries' moves to block President Evo Morales's plane from flying over their airspace, the Latin American country's envoy said Wednesday.

"The decisions of these countries have violated international law... We are already making procedures to denounce this to the UN secretary general," Bolivia's ambassador to the UN Sacha Llorenti told reporters in Geneva.
