The governor of Córdoba province, José Manuel De La Sota, today confirmed a wage deal was reached to end a conflict and protest staged by the police force yesterday, which coincided with a wave of looting.

A 20-year-old was shot dead and an 85-year-old man died of a heart attack, although authorities at the San Roque Hospital could not confirm if the cardiac arrest was due to last night's events. Almost 100 people were injured, and 52 were arrested after violent lootings last night hit the capital city of Córdoba province.

The incidents were reported metres away from where police officials were staging a protest to demand wage hikes.

During a speech from the city's Civic Centre, he announced that "from this moment, the police force is once again at the Cordoba public's service", and asked the media to help the Judiciary with the video recordings of last night's lootings.

"Nobody should get away with the damage they have done in the city of Córdoba. The police force has our backing and all our support to go out and work on restoring order," the governor fired.

De la Sota confirmed
that, under the terms of the agreement, the basic wage for a policeman would rise from 6 to 8000 pesos a month. Other perks and benefits for officers were also negotiated in order to put an end to the conflict.
