Iran to launch TV station in Bolivia’s coca country

Iran plans to open a television station “for all of Latin America,” to be based in the coca-growing Chaparé region of Bolivia, President Evo Morales announced at a gathering of cocaleros after his re-election as president of Bolivia’s coca-growers union. The station would be “for all of Bolivia, for all of Latin America, recognizing the great struggle of this peasant movement,” Morales told the gathering in Cochabamba. (AP, Feb. 19)
