Falklands government condemns cemetery desecration

Vandalism of a religious image at the Argentine war cemetery on the Falkland Islands has prompted a statement of regret from the government in Stanley.

It says: “We have been made aware of damage that has been done to the Argentine cemetery at Darwin. From what we have been told this appears to be damage to a glass screen. We understand the police are investigating what appears to be an act of vandalism.

“Clearly we condemn any action of this sort and very much regret that this might have happened. Anyone who knows anything about the cause of the damage should contact the police.

“The Families Commission has been informed and is working on the arrangements for repair.”
