The headquarters of the Grupo Clarin, Argentina's largest media conglomerate, was attacked Monday night by unknown persons throwing Molotov cocktails, but no injuries or worse were reported, according to a statement issued by the group on Tuesday.

"We regret and condemn this serious deed that, at first glance, appears to be a violent expression of intolerance against a communications media outlet. And we hope for its urgent clarification and punishment" for those who perpetrated it, Grupo Clarin said in the statement.

According to the daily Clarin on its Web site, at about 11:05 pm on Monday night a band of at least nine masked attackers hurled seven or eight Molotov cocktails at one of the entrances to the building, which houses the daily and Grupo Clarin, in the Barracas neighborhood of Buenos Aires,
