Argentina’s Puerta 8: the barrio and the deadly cocaine

Riot policemen take part in an operation in the Villa Sarmiento shanty town in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Thursday, Feb. 3, 2022, where it is believed people may have purchased contaminated cocaine. A batch of cocaine that has killed at least 20 people in Argentina appears to have been laced with a synthetic opioid, and police are scrambling to get as much of it off the streets as they can.
