BUENOS AIRES, Dec. 14 (Xinhua) -- At least four people were killed when members of the Movement of Unemployed Workers on Tuesday set fire to the doors of the Social Development Ministry building in Buenos Aires.

The fire was controlled by the building's staff and firemen of the Federal Police, however the protests continued.

The protesters blocked traffic on nearby streets for several hours. Four people have died in the conflict, police said.

After 8:00 p.m. local time (2300 GMT) national and local authorities met in the Interior Ministry for a solution to the conflict.
