Two Women Wounded in Attack on Political Party Office in Argentina

BUENOS AIRES – Two women were wounded when unidentified individuals fired shots at people gathered for the opening of an office of Argentina’s Nuevo Encuentro party in Buenos Aires, the party said on Sunday.

The incident occurred close to midnight Saturday in the Villa Crespo district of the Argentine capital.

“A woman was wounded by a bullet that went through her arm and grazed another” woman, the party said in a Twitter post.

“The shot was fired from a nearby building,” Nuevo Encuentro said.

Party leaders criticized the attack and called for an investigation so that “such a serious incident will not go unpunished.”

“The climate that has taken root in Argentina after Dec. 10 (when the presidential administration changed) has created a situation of violence in which some feel empowered to react in this way,” party leaders said.

“The only reason no one died is because of bad aim,” said Gabriela Cerruti, a former Nuevo Encuentro lawmaker.
