Buenos Aires, Argentina (Argentine Republic)
POLICE HOLD BACK THOUSANDS LINED UP TO BUY DOLLARS IN BUENOS AIRES.
Argentine riot police hold back thousands of dollar buyers lined
outside the Banco Nacion, March 26, 2002, waiting to change money as
the Argentine peso has lost over two thirds of its value since a
desastating four-year recession forced a devaluation in early January.
The Central Bank introduced new measures to tighten controls of the
foreign exchange market and halt the slide of the peso, which threatens
to throw the government's economic policy into turmoil. REUTERS/Enrique
