Two newspapers and a news agency in Bolivia face charges of “diffusion and incitement of racism or discrimination.” The news agency claims it only reported what President Evo Morales said in a speech, reported the newspaper La Razón.

Viceminister of Governmental Coordination Javier Balvideso told La Razón that the Fides News Agency (ANF in Spanish), and the newspapers Página Siete and El Diario published articles that “do not reflect the true intent” of the speech President Morales made on Aug. 15 at the archeological site Tiwanaku.
