Deadly wave of looting hits Argentina
Looters have broken into supermarkets in several Argentine cities, leaving at least two people dead in the ensuing chaos and stirring memories of the country's devastating economic crisis 11 years ago.

The government and labour unions blamed each other for the Thursday and Friday violence, which came amid a growing wave of anger with President Cristina Kirchner's administration over rising crime and economic uncertainty.

"There are elements in Argentina that want to provoke havoc and violence and stain our holiday season with blood," national security secretary Sergio Berni said.

"Argentina is not the same as it was in 2001," he said, referring to the economic turmoil the South American nation went through.

Police fired tear gas and rubber bullets to stop dozens of stone-throwing youths from looting a supermarket owned by French retailer Carrefour near the capital Buenos Aires, a day after the unrest erupted in the Patagonian ski resort of Bariloche.

Violence spreads

Government officials condemned the violence and sent 400 military police to the southern city, where raiders stormed another supermarket owned by the local unit of Wal-Mart. Looters made off with flat-screen televisions and other goods.

Mass looting in Argentina kills two


Vandals have pillaged several supermarkets in Argentina killing two people and injuring at least two dozen on Friday.
The police, who described the acts as simple looting not protests, said that 20 supermarkets in the cities of Rosario and Villa Gobernador Galvez had been plundered. Two people were murdered with a sharp object in the violence which also witnessed gunfire. Around 25 people were injured and 130 arrested during the looting about 190 miles northeast of Buenos Aires.
Riot police used rubber bullets to stop a mob from attacking a supermarket in San Fernando, in Buenos Aires province. Other stores have closed fearing the widespread robbery.
Friday’s actions followed scenes on Thursday when 400 military policemen were deployed in the Patagonian ski resort of Bariloche as dozens of people broke into a supermarket and carried away televisions and other electronics.
