BUENOS AIRES: U.S. and Argentine media reported that one of President George W. Bush's 24-year-old twin daughters had her purse stolen while being guarded by the Secret Service during a visit here. ABC News, citing unidentified law-enforcement reports, reported on its website on Tuesday that Barbara Bush's purse and cell phone were taken while she was dining in a Buenos Aires restaurant. La Nacion newspaper, citing anonymous Government sources, said in its online edition early on Wednesday that one of Mr. Bush's daughters had her purse taken on Sunday afternoon in the tourist district of San Telmo. A pair of thieves removed the purse from under a table while Secret Service agents stood guard at a distance, it reported. CNN cited a source as saying ''at no point were the protectees out of visual contact and at no point was there any risk of harm.'' AP
