A plane carrying Bolivian President Evo Morales on a flight from Russia was forced to land in Austria over suspicions that Edward Snowden might be on board, as several countries spurned the former US spy agency contractor’s asylum requests.

France and Portugal abruptly cancelled air permits for Morales’ plane, forcing the unscheduled stopover in Vienna.
Bolivian Foreign Minister David Choquehuanca blamed it on “unfounded suspicions that Mr. Snowden was on the plane.
“We want to express our displeasure because this has put the president’s life at risk.”
