2 dead in Bolivia post-election clashes

AFP, La Paz

At least two people have died and six others were injured in clashes between supporters and opponents of Bolivian President Evo Morales following his disputed election victory earlier this month, the government said Wednesday.

The controversial October 20 election, won by Morales but described by his opponent Carlos Mesa as a fraud, has triggered almost a week of violent clashes.

“There have been six people injured (and) two people killed: Mario Salvatierra, 55, Marcelo Terrazas, 41,” said the Interior Minister Carlos Romero, following reports of the latest violence in the eastern town of Montero.

up to 50 planes grounded globally over cracks: Boeing

AFP, Sydney

Boeing announced yesterday up to 50 of its popular 737NG planes had been grounded after cracks in them were detected, in another blow to the US aircraft maker following two deadly crashes.

Australian national carrier Qantas became the latest airline to take one of the planes out of the air, as it said it would urgently inspect 32 others but insisted passengers had nothing to fear.

The announcement by Qantas came after authorities in Seoul said nine of the planes were grounded in South Korea in early October, including five operated by Korean Air.
