Spain and Argentina clash over oil company nationalisation

Argentina has announced it will nationalise the oil company YPF, which is owned by Spanish oil firm Repsol.

Argentine President Cristina Fernandez said it was "a model designed to recover our sovereignty".

But the Spanish government has condemned what it called an arbitrary decision by Argentina to expropriate the company.
