Argentina has asked a United Nations court to order the release of one of its navy ships impounded in Ghana because of a debt dispute.
Argentina argues that the seizure violates maritime law.
The ship was prevented from leaving Ghana last month, after a local court ruled in favour of a financial fund backed by an American billionaire.
The fund says it is owed $370m (£233m) by the Argentine government as a result of its debt default a decade ago.
It is seeking $20m in return for the release of the ship, a three-masted training vessel.
