Argentina 'targets economists'

Opposition accuses Cristina Fernandez's government of censoring sensitive inflation numbers.

    The Argentine government is cracking down on economists who are speaking out about the country's inflation rate, by taking them to court.

    The government claims they are damaging the country by saying prices are rising as much as 25 per cent per year - one of the highest in the world.

    The opposition says Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner's government is hiding Argentina's problem and trying to silence those who disagree.
