Buenos Aires, Argentina (Argentine Republic)
DEMONSTRATORS MARCH IN BUENOS AIRES TO PROTEST AGAINST THE IMF.
A demonstrator holding a placard that reads: "No to the debt payment,"
shouts slogans against the International Monetary Fund in Buenos Aires,
September 9, 2003. Argentina's previous defaults on debt payments
numbed financial markets' sensitivity to its debt problems, a senior
IMF official said on Tuesday, as the possibility of another default
loomed. Argentina said it would not use its international reserves to
pay a $3 billion debt due on Tuesday as it sought a wider aid deal
before the lender is paid. REUTERS/Marcos Brindicci
