As Morales arrives in Mexico, Bolivian opposition senator declares herself interim president

Emerging from a Mexican air force jet in Mexico City, Morales was met on the tarmac by Foreign Secretary Marcelo Ebrard, who embraced the man who has led Bolivia for almost 14 years.

Hours later in a meeting of Bolivian legislators, nobody from the Morales’ ruling party was present to object when Jeanine Añez promoted herself to the head of the Senate, a position that she said put her in line to be the country’s president, since both Morales and his vice president had resigned.
