'Act of Aggression': Bolivian pres grounded amid Europe's Snowden lockdown (VIDEO)

Bolivia's presidential jet was forced into landing in Vienna on Wednesday after several EU countries barred the plane from entering their airspace over suspicions that whistleblower Edward Snowden was potentially aboard. Austrian authorities searched Morales' plane for Snowden, but found no stowaways on board, Austria's deputy chancellor has said. 'An act of aggression and violation of international law' is how Bolivia's UN envoy described Austria's decision to search the Bolivian presidential jet for NSA leaker. Evo Morales finally flew out of Vienna after being detained for over 12 hours in the airport.
