Background: Tuesday (22 April) was another day of violence in Argentina. Police used teargas and firearms to disperse strikers in renewed clashes at Villa Constitution.
The fresh violence came when 3,000 sympathisers demonstrated in support of about 7,500 workers from three steel plants in the town, 300 kilometres (190 miles) north of the capital, Buenos Aires.
During the incident, three people were reported hit by bullets. The workers have been on strike for more than a month to demand the release of about 50 labour union leaders.
Film of the factory was shot last month, when police arrested more than 70 workers, following an announcement by the Government that a plot had been uncovered to paralyse the country's heavy industry.
A day after the arrests, a young metal worker, who'd been employed to remove about 1,000 strikers from a major plant, was found shot dead. Police believed he was murdered by the outlawed Marxist People's Revolutionary Army (ERP).
The wave of violence in Argentina has so far claimed at least 185 lives since the beginning of the year.
