Evo Morales's home raided
The Public Prosecutor's Office raided Evo Morales's home in La Paz as part of the investigation into sedition and terrorism.
On Tuesday, the Public Prosecutor's Office of Bolivia raided the house of former President Evo Morales.
Morales would have held meetings with his trusted people in the weeks prior to his resignation and subsequent departure for Mexico.
Several documents and two computers have been seized from the house in the Achumi neighborhood of La Paz.
The denunciation was presented by Interior Minister Arturo Murillo.
The basis for the complaint is an audio recording of Morales instructing a leader to prevent food from entering the cities in order to regain political power in the country.
The intense search for the Chilean airplane continues
The search continues for the Chilean plane that disappeared on its way to Antarctica.
The Lockheed Martin C-130 disappeared on Monday, Dec. 9, without a trace, while crossing the Drake Passage between America and Antarctica.
Weather conditions are worsening in an area that is famous for its winds, its high waves, and low temperatures.
There was no emergency signal or trace to follow, except for the last position reported by the aircraft halfway through.
Some experts consider that there could have been a "total blackout" of the aircraft's electrical system, which did not allow it to give the alert.
Another possible theory is the structural collapse of the wings, something that happened with a c-130 in 2002 in California.
Venezuelan displacement will surpass Syria
Venezuela's humanitarian crisis is on the verge of surpassing that of Syrian refugees, according to a study by the Brookings Institution.
The study compares the 4.6 million Venezuelans who left their country with the 4.8 million Syrian refugees registered up to 2015.
However, Syria's crisis is already contained and that of Venezuela is tending to increase.
Brookings forecasts that between 6.5 million and 8 million Venezuelans will reside abroad by 2020.
Another highlight is the difference in international aid between the two cases.
According to the study, Syrian refugees would "receive" $1,500 each and Venezuelans $125.
Brazil’s new historically low rate
The Central Bank of Brazil (BCB) cut its base rate from 5% to a new historic low of 4.5% on Wednesday for the fourth consecutive time.
Investors' average projection is a 0.5 percentage point cut from the Selic rate in the last session of the year.
The Brazilian economy surprised with a growth of 0.6% in the third quarter over the previous quarter, two-tenths above average expectations.
Positive economic data relieves pressure on President Jair Bolsonaro, who is pushing a tough fiscal austerity program to improve the economy.
