In tomorrow's Buenos Aires Times, we cover the dominant story in Argentina, the disappearance of Santiago Maldonado, the 28-year-old artisan who went missing more than one month ago. We look at the developments of the past week and give the newspaper's view on where this case must go next, while Luciana Bertoia breaks down the main lines of investigation. Former editor of the Buenos Aires Herald, Robert Cox, meanwhile explains how Santiago's disappearance summons dark echoes of the past, finds fault with both the government and the opposition's reaction to the crisis and underlines why human rights are so important in Argentina.

We look at some of the biggest economic stories of the week and shine a light on Latin America, where Mexico has been rocked by its biggest earthquake in more than a century, leaving more than 30 dead, and Colombia has welcomed Pope Francis as the pontiff offers his backing to peace and reconciliation efforts in the country. During a visit to the United States, we meet Argentine Tomas Pendola, who is left in limbo with fears he may be kicked out of the country after Donald Trump's decision to end the DACA programme.

We combine world news and literature as Andrew Graham-Yooll travels to London to meet the director of the UK's National Poetry Library and Cristiana Visan brings us up to date with the best of Buenos Aires' culture scene. In Sports, Dan Edwards assesses Argentina's underwhelming World Cup qualifying matches and brings us a more positive tale: that of Syria's incredible bid to qualify for the greatest football tournament in the world.

In our Opinion section, Carolina Barros explains how Brazil President Michel Temer has managed to fend off threats of impeachment and why he is likely to see out his term in office, Michael Soltys tackles biofuel duties and reform in his Economic Questions column and James Neilson explores how Mauricio Macri has rebuffed the criticism levelled at him to form a successful political path for his Cambiemos coalition. Finally, Times' Executive Director Agustino Fontevecchia offers his view on the crisis with North Korea and gives some advice to Donald Trump.

All that and more in tomorrow's Buenos Aires Times.
