Dancing in the street at Argentine tango festival

Thousands of couples have taken to streets of central Buenos Aires to dance the tango.

The annual Gran Milonga Nacional, or Tango Music Festival, began in 2005 and sees whole blocks of the city centre closed down for dancing.

Saturday's event comes ahead of World Tango Day on 11 December.
