The Mexican foreign secretary says Mexico has granted the request for asylum from former Bolivian President Evo Morales.

Marcelo Ebrard had said Sunday that Mexico would give asylum to Morales if he wanted it, and Ebrard announced Monday that Morales had now requested asylum.

Bolivia’s first indigenous president resigned Sunday after the military called for him to quit following weeks of protests over a disputed election.
