MAR DEL PLATA, Argentina (AFP) - Riot police fired tear gas to disperse protestors throwing stones at security forces outside the Summit of the Americas held here.

The clashes took place some 600 meters (yards) from the Hermitage hotel in Mar del Plata where the summit opened Friday with leaders of 34 countries from the Americas, including US President George W. Bush.

About 300 demonstrators, most wearing ski masks, were involved in the clashes.

Some 8,000 security forces had been deployed to the resort in anticipation of protests.
