By Larry Habegger | Permalink | No Comments | August 10th, 2010 | Trackback

Protesting miners trapped some 100 foreign tourists for a week in Potosi, where they blocked all roads in and out of the city and piled boulders on the airport’s runways to prevent evacuation.

Travel in the area may be disrupted for the foreseeable future.
