Chaos, riots, looting as police go on strike in Argentine city (VIDEOS)

At least 130 people were injured and one killed following mass looting and vandalism by gangs of youths, who took over several parts of Cordoba City in Argentina. The lawlessness was a result of the police going on strike over low pay.

A young man around 20 years old has died from a gunshot wound to his chest, reports. More than 50 people who took part in the looting have been detained. Twelve of the 130 who were wounded sustained their injuries from firearms.

After the news of the strike broke Tuesday, looters quickly appeared in the streets, going primarily for the supermarkets and small stores, which rapidly shut their doors. Targets included clothing stores, sporting goods, toy stores, bike shops, and branches of cell phone companies. Local media termed the city ‘virtually paralyzed’.
