3 July 2013 Last updated at 14:27 BST

Bolivia has expressed its anger after their president's jet was forced to land in Austria on Tuesday night following a tip-off that the fugitive US spy agency contractor Edward Snowden was on board.

The plane was taking President Evo Morales home after a summit in Moscow.

The jet was reportedly searched for Mr Snowden, wanted for leaking US secrets.

He was apparently not on board and is still believed to be in Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport, from where he is seeking asylum in Bolivia and several other countries.

Steve Rosenberg reports from Moscow.
