Argentina and UK spar over Falklands

Disputed South Atlantic islands once again a source of tension between Argentina and the UK.

    The Falkland Islands, the British-controlled South Atlantic archipelago, is once again at the centre of a messy disagreement between Argentina and the UK.

    Argentina, which has long claimed the islands it calls Las Malvinas, has reacted with anger after David Cameron, the British prime minister, accused Buenos Aires of "colonialism" towards the Falklands.

    The latest dispute, sharpened by a dispute over ownership of potential oil and gas fields, comes 30 years after the two countries went to war over the islands.
