The Vice President of Argentine Cristina Fernandez De Kirchner has narrowly avoided assassination after a gunman’s weapon jammed as he aimed at her.

 De Kirchner was greeting supporters outside her home when a man emerged from the crowd and pointed a handgun in her face.

President of the country Alberto Fernandez said the gun was loaded with five bullets but failed to fire when triggered, while Police confirmed that the shooter, whom local media identified as a 35-year-old Brazilian man, has been taken into custody

Addressing the nation later last night, Fernandez condemned the attacker and said the attempt on De Kirchner’s life was one of the most serious incidents since the country returned to democracy in 1983.
