Bolivia FM denies Snowden on Morales plane

Bolivia's foreign minister on Tuesday denied that fugitive US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden was traveling aboard President Evo Morales's plane, which was forced to make an unscheduled stop in Austria. The minister, David Choquehuanca, told reporters that France and Portugal had closed their airspace to the presidential plane over the "huge lie" that Snowden was on board. Morales had been on a visit to Moscow, where Snowden -- who is facing espionage charges in the United States -- has been holed up in an airport transit area for more than a week. jac-gbh/mdl/sst
