Argentinians fight to preserve cultural sites

Residents in Buenos Aires take on real estate companies to protect heritage sites from being destroyed.

    Residents in Argentina's capital say the city's stunning architecture is in danger of being destroyed.

    They say construction and real estate companies are doing away with heritage sites in Buenos Aires to make way for modern developments.

    In an effort to stem the tide, conservationists have called on the government to do more and stop the demolitions.
