    Thousands of workers have held a national strike in the Argentine capital, demanding that the government extend tax cuts amid spiralling inflation. The walkout was called by Hugo Moyano, the head of two powerful labour unions and a former ally of President Cristina Fernandez Kirchner. Moyano is currently being investigated on corruption charges, and Kirchner says the tax cut is impossible. Al Jazeera's Teresa Bo reports from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
