Queen Elizabeth Land: Diplomatic row over Antarctica


A diplomatic dispute has broken out between Argentina and the UK following the government's proposals to rename a disputed part of Antarctica after the Queen.

Argentina claims the area - which William Hague announced would be named Queen Elizabeth Land - is part of their territory, and on Friday summoned the British ambassador to Buenos Aires over the issue.
