Authorities from several countries have publicly manifested themselves after Argentina’s vice president, Cristina Kirchner, was attacked in Buenos Aires on Thursday night (1st).
Kirchner was attacked at the door of his home in the Argentine capital, around 9 pm this Thursday.
According to the Argentine Federal Police, a Brazilian man, identified as Fernando Andrés Sabag Montiel, 35, was detained. He is named by the police as the author of the shooting attempt.
Former Bolivian president Evo Morales stated, through a post on Twitter, that he condemns the “cowardly assassination attempt” against the Argentine vice president.
“We condemn the cowardly assassination attempt on our sister @CFKArgentina. All our solidarity with the vice president. The Great Homeland is with you sister. The criminal and servile right to imperialism will not pass. The free and worthy people of #Argentina will defeat him,” Morales wrote.
