Land grabs in Buenos Aires

Inflation in the Argentinian capital is forcing many to go homeless as rent skyrockets.

    Rising house prices in Argentina's capital mean three out of every 10 families have nowhere to live.

    This has led to violent land grabs in some of the city's poorest areas. For the government, the issue is fast becoming a serious problem with no solution in sight.
