In Falkland Islands, some say Argentina-UK thaw not worth it

Some Falkland Islanders are protesting a recent thaw of relations between Argentina and Britain over the disputed islands.

Argentina lost a 1982 war with Britain over the South Atlantic archipelago.

Both countries recently announced they would work to remove restrictions in the oil, fishing and shipping industries affecting the Falklands. They also agreed to increase the number of flights between the islands and Argentina.

But islander Faith Felton says that it's not worth the sacrifice of those who died defending the British overseas territory. She launched an online petition this week called: "Is your cheap holiday worth their lives?"

Argentina claims Britain has illegally occupied the islands since 1833. Britain disputes the claim and says Argentina is ignoring the wishes of the 3,000 residents who wish to remain British.
