Bolivian President Evo Morales touched down in La Paz to a hero’s welcome – after his plane from Russia was diverted to Vienna on suspicion that US fugitive Edward Snowden was on board.

Outraged Morales told supporters who gathered at the airport to greet him: “I regret this, but I want to say that some European countries should free themselves from American imperialism. I can’t understand why some countries are faithful servants to this US imperialism.”

Russia’s Foreign Ministry has criticised France, Spain and Portugal for refusing to let Morales enter their airspace – adding that there had been “no evidence” that Snowden was on the Bolivian leader’s plane.
