    Bolivia is expelling all Venezuelan diplomats.

    The interim administration has accused the diplomats of organising unrest in the wake of the former President Evo Morales' resignation.

    Venezuela has been a key ally of former president Evo Morales, who resigned this week and sought asylum in Mexico, following weeks of protests.

    On Friday, demonstrators were back on the streets demanding a democratic handover of power.
