Attack on driver provokes strike in Buenos Aires

A bus driver was attacked this morning in the area of Bosques, in the Florencio Varela neighbourhood. The driver of the 324 route had his finger amputated by the attackers, which provoked a protest and strike from other drivers, demanding an improvement in security.
The incident occurred at 1.30am, when the 34-year old driver Jorge Barrios was making his daily route through Bosques neighbourhood.
The brutal amputation he suffered led him to have emergency surgery in the Quilmes ClĂ­nica Modelo, and he is now said to be stable. Drivers from the 324 route began their protest strike at 6.30am.
