Bolivian police chief says there is no warrant for arrest of Morales: TV

LA PAZ (Reuters) – There is no warrant for the arrest of President Evo Morales, a Bolivian police chief said on Sunday in comments aired on a local television channel.

Morales, who resigned on Sunday amid backlash over the disputed Oct. 20 election, denounced in an earlier statement on Twitter what he called an “illegal” police warrant for his arrest and saying that “violent groups” had attacked his home.
