Argentina protesters paralyse capital as inflation soars



Thousands of people have marched through the Argentinian capital, demanding more financial help from the government.
The country is rich in natural resources – but has suffered years of debt crises, inflation and economic mismanagement.
The protest comes as the government announced the economy is slowly recovering and poverty rates are dropping.
But inflation continues to be a challenge – last month it was close to five percent and it is expected to be even higher in March.

Al Jazeera’s Teresa Bo reports from the protest in Buenos Aires.
