LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) — The Bolivian government has summoned the Argentine ambassador to address the country’s claims that the attempted military coup that rattled Bolivia last week was a hoax.

Bolivian President Luis Arce faces a wave of criticism at home and abroad from those claiming he engineered the coup to make himself look like a hero — an accusation first made by General Juan Jose Zúñiga before his sacking and arrest on charges of leading the armed uprising.
