MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Ousted Bolivian president Evo Morales said in an interview with Reuters on Friday that he was not organizing demonstrations from Mexico, where he has been given asylum.

Morales resigned under pressure and fled to Mexico earlier this week after protests and violence following an Oct. 20 election that was tarnished by widespread allegations of fraud.

Supporters of Morales have continued to agitate on his behalf with marches and skirmishes in the streets of the capital La Paz and nearby El Alto.
