Bolivian prosecutors launch probe against General Zuniga for coup attempt

President Arce "denounced the irregular mobilization", in La Paz

LA PAZ (Reuters) - Bolivia's public prosecutor's office said on Wednesday it will launch a criminal investigation against General Juan Jose Zuniga and other participants for leading what the government and international leaders have condemned as an attempted coup.

Armored vehicles and soldiers withdrew from around the presidential palace on Wednesday afternoon and police appeared to retake control of a central plaza in La Paz as a newly sworn-in military command ordered troops to demobilize.
