South American leaders back Morales in plane row

COCHABAMBA, Bolivia (AP) - Bolivian President Evo Morales is threatening too close the U.S. Embassy in his country, after he says Washington pressured several European countries to refuse to allow his plane to fly through their airspace on Tuesday.

The plane had left Moscow and it was believed that U.S. espionage suspect Edward Snowden could have been on board.

Several other Latin American leaders are joining Morales in calling Tuesday's incident a violation of national sovereignty.
