OROMOMO, Bolivia (Reuters) - Bolivia's leftist government opened a consultation process on Sunday with indigenous people to decide the fate of a proposed highway that has drawn sharp criticism on environmental grounds.
The government will take until mid-September to consult 69 communities in the Isiboro Secure Indigenous Territory and National Park (TIPNIS), where work on the middle section of the 185-mile(300 km) road has been halted for nearly a year.
