Falklands: UN chief calls on UK and Argentina for calm

UN chief Ban Ki-moon has called on Argentina and the UK to avoid an "escalation" in tensions over the disputed Falkland Islands.

His appeal came as Argentina's foreign minister made an official complaint to the UN about the UK's "militarisation" in the South Atlantic.

Last month the UK said it was sending one of its newest Royal Navy destroyers to the region.
