Interesting story and neutral report, but missing some key points well summarized elsewhere [ http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/09/21/bolivia-sues-us-evo-morales-crimes-against-humanity_n_3964253.html# ] : "denying a plane access to airspace in most cases does not seem to fit the internationally-accepted definition of a "crime against humanity."" The news of the lawsuit against the U.S., although it rose to the No. 1 spot on Reddit's World News section on Friday, was largely ignored by the media. A Google search returns almost no results for stories from western news outlets of Morales' remarks." Almost as though reporting is being somehow suppressed(?). Also, internet reports of this story are conspicuously lacking any response or comment from Obama or his administration.
I agree, info on the legal aspects is a way the article could be even better. (This is the reporter's first published article on Wikinews; congratulations!)
It'd be very cool if one could solicit comment on the situation from an expert in international law; that's an advanced technique, of course, for which it would help a lot if the reporter either maintained a list of possible contacts, or had access to some guidance on finding contacts, for on-the-moment commentary on various subjects. Guidance like that is on our wish list of infrastructure improvements.
