Argentina suspends soccer following vice president murder attempt

Argentine football was banned Friday after an assassination attempt on Vice President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner.

Three first-division games, many lower-tier games, the reserve league, and the women's championship game were cancelled.

The Argentine Football Association repudiated what transpired with Vice President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. "We tell society that violence is never the answer.
"Today's meetings are cancelled."

Kirchner arrived home Thursday night before a big crowd. A guy was seen on film aiming a pistol towards Kirchner's face and pulling the trigger, but the gun did not discharge.

"Cristina is alive because, for reasons that haven't been proved officially, the gun didn't fire," President Alberto Fernández declared late Thursday, via The New York Times.

 "This is the worst since we reclaimed democracy."
Kirchner was Argentina's president from 2007-2015. Her spouse was president from 2003-2007.
