LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) -- NSA leaker Edward Snowden has yet another place to go, if only he can get there.

Bolivian President Evo Morales says Snowden is welcome in his country. He said Saturday he is making the offer as a protest against the U.S. and European nations he accuses of temporarily blocking his flight home from a Moscow summit because they suspected his might have Snowden on board.
Morales follows Presidents Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela and Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua in making the offer. He'd earlier said he was willing to consider asylum for Snowden, the same position taken by Ecuador, which is another of Bolivia's leftist Latin American allies.
Morales says he has not yet received a formal petition for asylum from Snowden.
