Buenos Aires Cocaine Crisis

By Zafir Kamdar

Authorities claim that tainted cocaine has killed at least 16 people and left 50 others hospitalized in Argentina’s Buenos Aires area.

The illicit narcotic was either laced with poison or “cut” with another chemical, according to investigators.

Anyone who bought cocaine in the last 24 hours should throw it away, according to the regional security minister.

According to reports, the narcotics were purchased in the same shantytown, and nine people have been arrested.

Investigators are expecting post-mortem examination findings to compare narcotics found in searches with those ingested by the victims.

The victims were sent to local hospitals from the Hurlingham, Tres de Febrero, and San Martn areas of the capital region.
