Bolivia faces August showdown as autonomy wins again

Voters in the gas-rich province of Tarija overwhelmingly approved an autonomy statute Sunday, but supporters of President Evo Morales, who opposes autonomy, say the real test will come Aug. 10, when voters nationwide will decide whether to recall Morales and the country's governors. Tarija is the fourth province to approve autonomy statutes.
