Morales signs new law forbidding construction of Amazon road
The Bolivian president Evo Morales has signed a new law forbidding the construction of a road project in the Amazon that had triggered protests by indigenous people.
The law bans any highway through the area known as the Tipnis territory.
He made the announcement after protesters arrived in La Paz following a two-month march from the Amazon lowlands to voice their opposition.
From La Paz, Mattia Cabitza reports.
