      Efforts to identify the remains of Argentinian soldiers buried in unmarked graves on the Falkland Islands have been suspended indefinitely after the the centre-right administration of president Mauricio Macri froze funding for the anthropologists conducting the investigation.

      The Argentinian forensic anthropology team, Equipo Argentino de Antropología Forense (EAAF), has successfully investigated cases around the world, including the identification of Che Guevara’s body in Bolivia, and victims of the killing fields of Kosovo.

      But the institution is now being forced to shut down its operation on the Falklands because it has not received any payment from the Argentinian government in 2018.
