    Bolivia's interim President Jeanine Anez has signed legislation paving the way for new elections - that bars former President Evo Morales from running.

    The legislation had been approved by the National Assembly the day before.

    A wave of violent protests after disputed election results forced Morales to step down two weeks ago, killing more than 30 people in the unrest.
