The Sun has published an open letter advert in an Argentine paper warning the country to keep their "hands off" the Falklands. It is in response to president Cristina Kirchner's call on Britain to hand them over in an open letter ad in The Guardian.
The newspaper reports that the Government is aware of at least a dozen "incidents of disruption or intimidation on cruise liners" since mid November, and cites a Foreign Office minister as calling on militants to “allow cruise ships to travel without threats or hindrance".
The incidents apparently include ships being refused entry to Argentine ports, ransacking of the offices of shipping companies and operators being forced to alter or abandon their itineraries.
Activists have set fire to copies of the English-language Buenos Aires Herald newspaper as they burn an advert taken out by British tabloid newspaper The Sun, that defends Britain's right to govern the Falkland Islands.
The Argentine president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner said in a letter to David Cameron, via a newspaper advert, that the colonial power of Britain has "refused to return the territories [the Falkland Islands] to the Argentine Republic, thus preventing it from restoring its territorial integrity."
