As this black Thursday progresses for Argentina in which Tributes to Maradona follow after his death, the order in the queues to access his wake at the Casa Rosada in Buenos Aires has been overwhelmed.
The headquarters of the Argentine Government is the place chosen to say goodbye to ’10’ and, from early in the morning, hundreds of thousands of people lined up to access the coffin of their idol.
Already in the morning there were several altercations but as the afternoon progressed the situation has been completely out of control. Strong clashes between fans and the police, who was forced to throw rubber balls and release pepper spray.
Even a large group of fans jumped the Casa Rosada fences to access its interior as can be seen in this video in which they roam freely around government facilities. An irresponsibility that has caused the Argentine Government to decide remove the coffin of the room he was in for security reasons.

The wake was originally scheduled to close at 4:30 PM Buenos Aires time (8:30 PM Spanish time), but finally, due to the lack of control and the number of people still waiting to fire ‘El Diego’, It has been decided to extend it until 7:00 p.m., 11 p.m. Spanish time.
