  • Description

    Police and troops were out in the streets of the Argentinean city of Tucuman on Tuesday(27 June); as authorities moved to quell the present wafe of violence sweeping the country.

    Violence came to Tucuman a week ago when police broke up large student demonstrations in support of a civil servants' strike.

    On the second day of the troubles a student was killed - apparently when he was struck on the head by a police tear-gas grenade. His death brought new demonstrations and violence in other Argentinean cities including the capital, Buenos Aires, Cordoba and Mendoza.

    In Tucuman, the streets remained tense this week. A large force of troops and police were on duty - and students were frequently stopped and searched. Some were arrested.

    The new violence in Argentina comes as President Alejandro Lanusse steps up his plans to lead the country back to constitutional rule through a general election next March.
