Official: Morales assassination plot foiled

CNN has this brief item: “Official: Plot to kill Bolivian president foiled

A top Bolivian government official said Monday that the country’s intelligence services had uncovered a plot to assassinate President Evo Morales..

“A few weeks ago, the state organizations of intelligence received information about plans in relation to an assassination, and that those plans came from the far-right opposition,” Minister of Government Alfredo Rada told reporters in La Paz.

Rada said the plan was to be carried out by an indigenous person while Morales was in a crowd.

Wire accounts of the story are pretty limited so far, but you can monitor the story via Google News.

UPDATE: I suspect that Bolivia watcher Miguel Centellas will weigh in on this at some point. And you can search Twitter for news, as well.
