Sale of Peron artefacts stirs controversy

Argentinians are squabbling over ownership of Juan Peron's possessions decades after his death.



    A squabble over ownership of the possessions of Juan Peron, Argentina's former president, is causing controversy in Buenos Aires.

    Mario Rotundo, Peron's sole heir, has said he wants to sell all the possessions left to him by Peron so that he can collect money to help the poor. But the government is opposing the idea and they are trying to block the sale.

    They say the items belong to the nation and are part of Argentina's history.
