BUENOS AIRES, Argentina
Riot police are firing tear gas and using water cannons to restrain a group of youth who are hurling rocks and vandalizing stores at a rally in Buenos Aires to celebrate Argentina's gutsy performance in a 1-0 loss to Germany in the World Cup finals.
Local media reported 8 police officers were injured in violence late Sunday.
The disturbances came after thousands of Argentines gathered peacefully at the Obelisk with families and neighbors to applaud Argentina's best World Cup performance in 24 years.
