Falklands tensions on knife-edge as Argentina ready to commemorate 40-year anniversary

ARGENTINA will commemorate 40 years since the end of the Falklands War as it intensifies its claim to seize back control of the British Overseas Territory. The South American nation has put in place plans to commemorate the fallen. Argentina’s 1982 invasion sparked a war which left around 650 Argentine soldiers and 255 British dead.
