Argentina renews Falklands claim

As Argentines remember the dead of the 1982 conflict, many want an end to British rule.

    It has been 28 years since Britain and Argentina went to war over the disputed Falkland islands - known as the Malvinas by Argentines - in the South Atlantic.

    Britain emerged victorious from the conflict and the islands have since grown prosperous from tourism and fishing among other things.

    Now with oil companies exploring the waters surrounding the islands, tensions between the two countries are rising again.

    As Argentina pays tribute to the soldiers who fell in the conflict, many people, including the president, are raising their voices against the continued British rule over the islands.
