Argentinian Falklands advert attracts UK ire

Advertisement run by Argentine government for London Olympics filmed on disputed territory.

    An Argentine advertisement run by the country's government for the London Olympics has been criticised by Britain's foreign minister as a publicity "stunt".

    The advert was filmed on the Falkland Islands, which both the UK and Argentina lay claim to, and has been released as tensions over the issue have been rising in recent months.
