The U.S. Ambassador's expulsion

The US ambassador to Bolivia has been ordered to leave the country by President Evo Morales

Mr Morales accused Philip Goldberg of supporting the opposition and encouraging the division of the country.

He said the foreign minister would inform Mr Goldberg that he "should return to his country at once".

Morales, saying he ``isn't afraid of the empire,'' gave the speech at the presidential palace hours after the government blamed opposition groups in eastern Bolivia for damaging a natural gas pipeline to Brazil, the newswire reported.
