Kathmandu : Argentina’s Vice President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner was unharmed on Thursday when a man with a loaded gun tried to shoot her but the gun did not go off, officials said.
The attack underscores rising political tension in Argentina and around the region that has put politicians on edge from Colombia to Brazil.
“A man pointed a firearm at her head and pulled the trigger. Cristina is still alive because, for some reason yet to be confirmed, the gun … did not fire,” President Alberto Fernandez said in a televised address. –Agency
