Bolivia breaks Israel ties, claims Gaza 'genocide'

President Evo Morales says Bolivia has broken relations with Israel over its invasion of the Gaza Strip and will seek to charge top Israeli officials with genocide in the International Criminal Court.
Morales said Wednesday the Israeli attack "seriously threatened world peace." He is calling for Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to face criminal charges for the deaths of hundreds of Palestinian civilians.
Morales chided the United Nations' "Insecurity Council" for its "lukewarm" response to the crisis. He called for the U.N. to hold an emergency general session to condemn the invasion.
He also said Israeli President Shimon Peres should be stripped of his Nobel Peace Prize for failing to stop the invasion.
