Argentina StarArgentina Star | Current News Headlines about Argentina
A star in newspaper reporting, the Argentina Star provides a complete coverage of Argentina news, bringing you breaking news, what's happening in local and global sports, and a host of other features.
From the capital, Buenos Aires, extending to all parts of the country, neighbouring countries and the general region, the Argentina Star covers it all. And it doesn't stop there.
Global news, finance, and business reports are provided and updated regularly. Whether it's local, regional or international, news, sports or business, there can be no more comprehensive a coverage than that provided by the online newspaper, Argentina Star. That is our objective, and we strive very hard to achieve it.
The task is not always easy, as obtaining news in this part of the world in English can be very time-consuming and frustrating. Virtually all newspapers that publish in the region, and Internet news services, for obvious reasons report in the local language.
The Argentina Star is a resource for local news and information, and provides live, and updating weather forecasts for Buenos Aires and other major cities in the country. There's also a news poll where readers can register their votes on topical issues making the news.

The preliminary medical report said that May 12, Videla has taken "a fall while showering in one of the bathrooms at the Marcos Paz Prison that resulted in broken bones".
The document added that the former dictator was taking anticoagulant medications, which - with the fractures resulting from the fall - caused internal hemorrhaging that led to a heart attack.
Judge Juan Pablo Salas is still awaiting other complementary studies, including a toxicology report, which will be completed within 20 days, the sources told Telam.
It is expected that the judge will meet with relatives of Videla to notify them of the autopsy results and it will be then that the remains of the former strongman will be turned over to them for burial.
The Videla family has not disclosed where they plan to bury the general. ...
