    Thousands gathered in front of the Presidential Palace in Argentina to protest against what they claim is political persecution.

    An arrest warrant has been issued for the former president of Argentina, Cristina Kirchner.

    She is accused of allegedly covering up Iranian involvement in the 1994 bombing that killed 85 people at a Jewish centre in Buenos Aires.
