Bolivian security forces say they have prevented an attempt on the life of Evo Morales, the country’s president. Three alleged attackers were shot dead by police at a hotel in the city of Santa Cruz on Thursday, the Reuters news agency reported. Two people were also arrested during the incident. Two Hungarians and one Bolivian were killed in the shootout, said Hugo Escobar, the Bolivian police chief. Morales, in Venezuela for talks with Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan president, and Raul Castro, his Cuban counterpart, said he had ordered an operation to arrest the suspects. “Yesterday I gave instruction to the vice-president to move to arrest these mercenaries and this morning I was informed of a half-hour shootout at a hotel in the city of Santa Cruz – three foreigners are dead and two arrested.” Morales also said an Irish citizen may have been among what he called foreign mercenaries involved in the alleged plot.
