Former Bolivian President Evo Morales tweeted late on Monday night that he was leaving the country for Mexico, which granted him asylum, as his supporters and their rivals clashed on the streets of La Paz.
Morales announced his departure on Twitter just after 9.30pm (01:30 GMT).
Morales stepped down on Sunday following weeks of protests over a disputed presidential election, but the ensuing resignations of every constitutionally-designated successor have left it unclear who will take his place and how.
