Daniel Santoro, "Argentina, is the national political editor at Clarin, Argentina's largest newspaper, and has conducted extensive investigations into government corruption, national security matters, and international drug trafficking. Santoro has broken a number of scandals detailing arms smuggling, including one story linking Argentine Gen. Antonio Angel Vicario to the 1993 sale of 230 tons of gunpowder to Croatia, which at the time was under a U.N. arms embargo. That story resulted in the first arrest of a high-ranking Argentine military official for arms trafficking. Santoro also revealed that Argentina had supplied about 6,500 tons of arms and ammunition to Croatia between 1991 and 1995, despite the embargo. Santoro was awarded the 1995 King of Spain international journalism award for his "outstanding contribution" to journalism. In addition to his work at Clarin, Santoro teaches investigative journalism at the Universidad de Belgrano in Buenos Aires and has also conducted classes at the Fundacion para un Nuevo Periodismo Iberoamericano, run by Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel Garcia-Marquez in Colombia. In 2000, Santoro published Puro Periodismo (Pure Journalism), a journalism textbook." [1]
