*The Bolivian new left-wing President, Evo Morales, has cut his salary 
by more than a half to a little over $1,800 (£1,012) per month.*
The decision means that the salaries of all Bolivian public sector 
employees will be reviewed, as no official can earn more than the 
president.Mr Morales said the money saved would be used to increase the 
numbers of doctors and teachers.
