Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner waves to supporters at Government House in Buenos Aires on September 30, 2014.
Argentina's President Cristina Kirchner on Tuesday charged in an emotional address that domestic and US interests were pushing to topple her government, and could even kill her.
Domestic business interests "are trying to bring down the government, with international (US) help," she said.
Kirchner said that on her recent visit to fellow Argentine Pope Francis - whose help she has sought in Argentina's ongoing debt default row - police warned her about supposed plots against her by ISIL activists
"So, if something happens to me, don't look to the Mideast, look north" to the United States
, Kirchner said at Government House.
Don't believe US: Kirchner
Just hours after the US embassy here warned its citizens to take extra safety precautions in Argentina, an aggravated Kirchner said "when you see what has been coming out of diplomatic offices, they had better not come in here and try to sell some tall tale about ISIS trying to track me down so they can kill me.
Argentina is still struggling with the aftermath of a default on nearly $100 billion in debt in 2001, with the two hedge funds it labels vultures battling the country in US courts.
But it has been blocked by US federal judge Thomas Griesa, who has ordered the country to first repay two hedge funds demanding the full $1.3 billion face value of their bonds.
