Bolivian President Evo Morales on Wednesday
threatened Spain, France, Portugal and Italy with legal reprisals for
initially having denied his plane permission to enter their airspace.
Morales, speaking at the Vienna airport before boarding his presidential jet and leaving for La Paz, said he felt he had been "abducted for nearly 13 hours."
The president called the treatment he had been given "not an insult to the president but to an entire people, to the entire region of Latin America."
He denied that any officials had checked his plane for the presence of US fugitive Edward Snowden.
