Bolivia's leadership is in turmoil following the sudden resignation of its president, Evo Morales, who has fled the country after weeks of protests over a disputed October election.

Senate leader Jeanine Anez declared herself interim president in the Congress on Tuesday despite a lack of a quorum to appoint her in a legislative session that was boycotted by legislators from Morales' left-wing party.

Anez claimed the post anyway and the United States has shown its support, but her critics are calling it a coup. 

So, is this the beginning of another crisis in Bolivia? And how is it being seen across Latin America?
