Former Bolivian interim President Jeanine Áñez was arrested on Saturday after the country's Attorney General's Office issued arrest warrants the previous day against Áñez and five ministers from her former cabinet.

Government Minister Carlos Eduardo del Castillo del Carpio confirmed Áñez's arrest. At least two of the former ministers have also been detained, according to state channel Bolivia TV.
CNN has not been able to access the basis for the charges through the prosecutor's office, but Áñez published on her Twitter account images of what she says are the six pages of the arrest warrant, which lists charges of "terrorism," "conspiracy" and "sedition."
In a series of tweets, Áñez said, "In an act of abuse and political persecution the MAS [Movement Towards Socialism] government has ordered my arrest." She added: "It is accusing me of having participated in a coup that never happened. My prayers for Bolivia and for all Bolivians."
