Russia accuses Bolivian opposition of unleashing wave of violence

Russia on Monday accused Bolivia's opposition of unleashing a wave of violence in the South American nation and said it looked like a government push for dialog had been swept aside by an orchestrated coup.
Bolivian President Evo Morales said on Sunday he was resigning to ease violence that has gripped Bolivia since a disputed election, but he stoked fears of more unrest by saying he was the victim of a "coup" and faced arrest.
Russia's foreign ministry said in a statement it was alarmed by the events and called on all political forces to show common sense and to act responsibly.
