Bolivian President Evo Morales said Thursday that he will file a lawsuit against the US government for crimes against humanity. Morales decried the United States, calling President Obama a "criminal" and blasting the government for its intimidation tactics and fear-mongering after the Venezuelan presidential jet was blocked from entering U.S. airspace.
"I want to communicate...that we are going to prepare an international lawsuit so that Obama and his government are judged for their crimes against humanity," Morales said.
On Thursday, Venezuela announced that President Maduro's plane had been denied entry into Puerto Rican airspace. Maduro was due to arrive in Beijing this weekend for bilateral talks with the Chinese government.
