The Mexican government confirmed Monday that Evo Morales, who resigned as Bolivian president after nearly 14 years in power, was aboard a plane it had sent to the South American country after it had granted him asylum for "humanitarian reasons.”

“Evo Morales is already on the Mexican Government plane sent to ensure his safe transfer to our country,” Mexico’s Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard tweeted at about 7.45 pm local time. EFE-EPA
