The van carrying Argentinean President Alberto Fernández was attacked with stones.

Dozens of protesters kick and throw rocks at a mini-bus carrying Argentine President Alberto Fernandez on Saturday as he visited an area devastated by forest fires.

The incidents were verified on two occasions. The first was just after landing, on the way to the Lago Puelo operations centre.

The second was on the President's journey from that centre, where he met with authorities and journalists. As a result of the attack, a National Parks van and another from the Federal Police without identification were broken.
