Mexico grants asylum to Bolivia's former president, Evo Morales

Mexico has granted asylum to Bolivia's former president, Evo Morales, after the veteran socialist resigned following a disputed election in the South American country.
Mexico's Foreign Minister, Marcelo Ebrard, told reporters it will immediately inform Bolivia's foreign ministry that under international law, it should offer safe conduct to Mr. Morales.
The departure of Bolivia's first indigenous president, one of a wave of  leftists who dominated Latin America's politics at the start of the century, has failed to end weeks of violent protests about allegations of fraud in the October 20 re-election.
