Mexico has offered asylum to former Bolivian President Evo Morales, a day after he resigned following weeks of protest over a disputed election. Mexico says the decision was taken for "humanitarian reasons" after a request from Mr Morales. Morales, 60, had been in power since 2006.

Mr Morales, Bolivia's first indigenous leader, stepped down after the head of the army publicly called on him to leave his post. The deputy head of the Senate said she would take over as interim president until new elections were held.

Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump has hailed the resignation of Bolivia's leftist leader Evo Morales as a sign to "illegitimate" regimes and praised the role of the country's military.
