Buenos Aires, Argentina (Argentine Republic)
DEMONSTRATORS MARCH IN BUENOS AIRES TO PROTEST AGAINST THE IMF.
Holding a banner that reads "Hunger," demonstrators march through
downtown Buenos Aires protesting against the International Monetary
Fund, September 9, 2003. Argentina's previous defaults on debt payments
numbed financial markets' sensitivity to its debt problems, a senior
IMF official said today, as the possibility of another default loomed.
Argentina said it would not use its international reserves to pay a $3
billion debt due today, as it sought a wider aid deal before the lender
is paid. REUTERS/Enrique Marcarian
