Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner has vowed that Buenos Aires will not bow to "blackmail by vulture funds" in a row over an Argentine naval ship seized by Ghana.

The Libertad, a three-masted tall ship, was detained in the Ghanaian port of Tema under a court order obtained by NML Capital, which says it will only release the ship upon payment of at least $20m.
