Bolivia has accused European countries of an "act of aggression" for refusing to allow its presidential jet into their airspace, amid suggestions US fugitive Edward Snowden was on board.


Bolivia said France, Portugal, Spain and Italy had blocked the plane from flying over their territory.

President Evo Morales was flying back to Bolivia from Moscow when the plane was diverted to Vienna.

The jet was reportedly searched for Mr Snowden, wanted for leaking US secrets.

He was apparently not on board and is still believed to be in Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport, from where he is seeking asylum in Bolivia and several other countries.

Bolivia's UN envoy Sacha Llorenti told reporters in Geneva that he would complain to the UN about the European countries' actions.

Egypt's army has been holding talks with government and protest leaders, as the deadline it set for a resolution to the mass protests approaches.

Cairo (CNN) -- Bloodshed intermingled with blood oaths early Wednesday in Egypt, as time appeared to be running out for Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy.

Health officials have counted the bodies of 23 people who died when Morsy's angry opponents met head-on overnight with his supporters at Cairo University.

Hundreds more left the clashes with bruises and other injuries, state-funded Al-Ahram news reported, after rocks, Molotov cocktails and bullets flew.

Demonstrations elsewhere in Egypt were mostly peaceful, and protest leaders have called for nonviolence.

But as a deadline approached on an ultimatum the military gave Morsy this week, the leaders spoke of potential bloodshed.
