Bolivia backs trial for ex-leader

The Bolivian Congress has voted to put former President Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada on trial over the deaths of up to 80 people in October last year. The violence erupted during protests at government plans to export natural gas. Mr Sanchez de Lozada, 74, is currently in the US, where he fled after resigning from his post. Congress voted overwhelmingly for him and 15 other members of his ousted cabinet to be put on trial. The vote was backed by members of his own party. Congress debated the motion for 12 hours before 126 of the 140 members decided to summon Mr Sanchez de Lozada for trial. Full Story
