Bolivian President, Evo Morales waves on entering his plane, Falcon 900 EX, before take off at the airport in Vienna, Austria, 03 July 2013. Bolivian President Evo Morales' plane landed overnight 02 July in Vienna after the aircraft was denied access to French and Portuguese airspace over suspicions that US fugitive Edward Snowden was on board, authorities in La Paz said. Bolivian Foreign Minister David Choquehuanca said France and Portugal had acted on 'unfounded suspicions' that Snowden had boarded Morales' plane. Morales had attended a meeting of top gas-producing countries in Moscow, where accused intelligence agency leaker Snowden has spent more than a week in diplomatic limbo in an airport transit area. He has sought asylum - so far in vain - first from Ecuador, and then from 20 other countries. [Photo: CFP]

Bolivia's ambassador to the United Nations denied Wednesday that the former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden was on plane with Bolivian President Evo Morales, media reports said.
An airplane carrying Morales was diverted to Vienna after taking off from Moscow Tuesday on suspicions that Edward Snowden was on board.
Currently, the plane has taken off from Vienna airport after a voluntary inspection by the Austrian authorities found no unauthorized people on board.
Austria's move was considered by Bolivia as an act of aggression and a violation of international law, media quoted Bolivia's ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva as saying on Wednesday.
The plane was forced to land in the airport of Austrian capital after France and Portugal abruptly cancelled air permits for it, according to the reports.
