Bolivia's president home

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Bolivian President Evo Morales returned home to a hero's welcome on Wednesday (July 3rd). His presidential plane was diverted and forced to make an emergency landing in Austria for 13 hours on rumours Edward Snowden was on board. Crowds gathered at the airport waving Bolivian flags and lined the red carpet laid out for the president's arrival. On Tuesday, France and Portugal abruptly banned Morales' plane from entering their airspace due to suspicions that Snowden, wanted by Washington for leaking secrets, was on the plane. Italy and Spain also banned the plane from their skies, according to Bolivia. France has since blamed the incident on what it called an administrative mishap and that it had never intended to ban Morales from its airspace. Morales was on his way back from an energy conference in Moscow.
