    Background: BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA

    A huge anti-government rally in Argentina's capital Buenos Aires ended in violence on December 16. One young man was killed and 80 people injured when police fired canisters of tear-gas into the 100,000-strong crowd gathered in the Plaza de Mayo. There were 120 arrests in what political party officials who had organised the march called "the most violent rally since the military seized power in 1976". They said it was a massive display of opposition to government policies, and accused police of indiscriminate and exaggerated reactions. An interior ministry official blamed the violence on demonstrators who tried to break through police lines guarding the presidential palace. Argentina's President Reynaldo Bignone said he regretted the rally had ended in rioting. He called for a full cabinet meeting to discuss the events on the following day.
