After a mafia-style attack on Thursday against a supermarket in Rosario owned by relatives of Lionel Messi's wife, many opposition leaders in Argentina suggested the Armed Forces be deployed against the drug-trafficking gangs operating in the country's third-largest city.
A supermarket in the Argentine city of Rosario owned by the family of Antonela Roccuzzo -Lionel Messi's wife- was stormed by two men on a motorcycle who fired at least 14 shots and left a maffia-style threatening message for the national football team's captain. The note also said Rosario Mayor Pablo Javkin was a narco who would not protect the Messi family.
Barcelona football star and Argentine international Lionel Messi (30) and his life-long partner Antonella Roccuzzo (29), were married Friday evening in their native Rosario, some 200 miles northwest of Buenos Aires amid large-scale international press coverage. The couple already has two sons - Thiago (4) and Mateo (1).
