A British man born on the Falkland Islands has become the first person from there to choose Argentine citizenship.

James Peck, who is married to an Argentinian woman and lives in Buenos Aires, was handed his national identity card by President Cristina Fernandez, during a ceremony to mark the 29th anniversary of the end of the Falklands War.

Mr Peck's father fought in the war on the British side, but he thinks the islands, called the Malvinas in Spanish, should be ruled by Argentina.
