Bolivia says Spain ‘tried to extract’ wanted aide from Mexico embassy

Bolivia on Saturday accused Spain of an abortive attempt to extract a wanted former government aide from Mexico’s embassy in La Paz, prompting a sharp denial from Madrid. It was the latest twist in a murky incident Friday involving embassy personnel in the Bolivian capital that has sparked a bitter diplomatic spat. Several hours later, Bolivia’s top diplomat accused Spanish embassy staff of trying to infiltrate the Mexican mission with a group of masked men in what it said was a violation of Bolivian sovereignty.
