A former police chief in Argentina has shot himself dead in front of television cameras.

Mario Ferreyra was giving an interview prior to an arrangement with police over his arrest.

Police were about to arrive to take him away on human rights charges, including kidnap and murder.

He was at his home in the northern province of Tucuman, speaking to an interviewer and denying the charges when he killed himself.

He then told his wife, Maria, that he would love her forever, pulled a pistol from behind his shoe and shot himself in the head.

Police, who arrived at his farm found him dead, with the family gathered around and cameras still rolling.

Mr Ferreyra was accused of offences allegedly committed during the military government that ran Argentina between 1976 and 1983.
