Chavez says plot to kill Bolivian leader uncovered

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez announced on Sunday that a plot to assassinate his friend and ally Evo Morales of Bolivia had been uncovered. Chavez said that the Bolivian president called and told him that authorities in the Andean country had "discovered an assassination plot." The Venezuelan leader said during a radio broadcast that he wouldn't go into details - leaving that to Bolivian officials. Morales is one of several close leftist allies in Latin America who share the Venezuelan leader's antagonistic stance toward the United States.
