Bolivian armed forces orders operations to 'neutralise' armed groups

LA PAZ (Reuters) - The Bolivian Armed Forces said it had ordered air and land operations to “neutralise” armed groups that act outside the laws, in a statement released on Sunday.

Bolivia has endured heavy protests since President Evo Morales’ disputed election victory on Oct. 20. Earlier on Sunday, the Organisation of American States (OAS) said an audit had determined irregularities in the election. Morales agreed to hold new elections and replace the electoral tribune authorities.
