Dozens arrested after riots break out in Argentina

At least 30 people were arrested Sunday in Buenos Aires after a World Cup gathering turned violent.

Although Argentina lost to Germany 1-0, thousands of fans came to the Obelisk to celebrate the team's best showing in close to 25 years, CNN reports. According to local media, dozens of unruly people showed up and vandalized a theater, beat up journalists, attacked police officers with rocks and bottles, and broke store windows.

State news agency Telam said that 15 police officers and at least five others were injured.
