Argentina accuses Britain of 'sacrilege'

An Argentine war cemetery on the Falkland Islands has been vandalised.

The destruction is being investigated by police and the Island’s government has condemned the crime.

The remains of 237 Argentine soldiers are buried in the cemetery. Their families blamed British hostility for what they called an act of sacrilege.
