    Background: One person was killed and another injured when police clashed with demonstrators outside a giant car and railway carriage factory in Cordoba, Argentina, on Friday (12 March). The trouble started with an anti-Government strike called to protest at the appointment of a new provincial governor. Workers at the huge Fiat complex walked out a second time when they heard of the death of an 18-year-old youth in a clash outside the plant. Police said they opened fire on the demonstrators because they were stoning firemen trying to extinguish burning railway carriages and sleepers obstructing traffic on the track to Buenos Aires. The fires had been started by some of the 3,000 demonstrators, who also set up barricades.
