CNN Breaking News

Bolivia "is willing to give asylum" to U.S. intelligence leaker Edward Snowden, President Evo Morales said Saturday, according to a government statement.

Morales earlier expressed anger at the United States over an incident involving the presidential plane and a rumor about Snowden.

Several European countries refused to allow Morales' plane through their airspace Tuesday because of suspicions Snowden was aboard. With no clear path home available, the flight crew made an emergency landing in Vienna, where authorities confirmed Snowden was not a passenger.

The Bolivians put the blame for the incident squarely on the United States.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has also offered asylum to Snowden, the state-run AVN news agency reported Friday. The report came shortly after Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega said he would grant Snowden asylum in his country "if the circumstances permit."

Snowden h as been holed up at Moscow's Sheremetyevo International Airport since June 23, when he arrived from Hong Kong.
