Worldwide fears over Argentina's nationalisation of YPF

Members of the European Parliament have condemned Argentina's decision to nationalise the Spanish-controlled oil company YPF.

They said the move was "an attack on the exercise of free enterprise".

They also demanded that the European Commission take action against Buenos Aires at the World Trade Organization.

Argentine officials have said they are not worried about possible reprisals.
