A general strike called to protest against the government of Argentina's President Cristina Kirchner disrupted public transport Thursday amid growing public anger over price rises and crime.
The impact of the strike was uneven, with department stores, restaurants, businesses and schools open in Buenos Aires and Rosario, the country's third largest city, despite the difficult commute.
But those that remained open were emptier than usual. And buses, commuter trains and most metro lines were shut down by the 24-hour walkout, while airlines were forced to cancel flights.
