Bolivia claims Foreign Mercenaries plotted to kill President Morales. They've got 3 dead foreigners and two more in custody after a raid by national authorities, and assert a large stock of military-grade weaponry was confiscated.
However, the opposition claims a fabrication:
Santa Cruz Gov. Ruben Costas said in a news conference that local police were not involved in the operation and suggested that it was staged to discredit his government.Certainly should be interesting to see what evidence comes out now, and how it stands up to scrutiny.
"The government for three years has repeated allegations of a coup but has never shown any evidence," Costas said.
