Argentine going to UN in Falklands dispute


BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) -- Argentina President Cristina Fernandez says she will formally complain to the U.N. Security Council about Britain sending one of its most modern warships to the Falkland Islands.

Fernandez accuses British Prime Minister David Cameron of militarizing their long dispute over the islands in the South Atlantic.

Argentina calls the islands the Malvinas and is demanding that British return them to its control. Britain seized the Falklands in 1833, driving off Argentine colonists.

Argentine troops invaded the Falklands in 1982, but were defeated by a counter-invasion by British forces.
