Hundreds of "Beliebers" have marched in Argentina's capital, calling on authorities to let Canadian pop idol Justin Bieber perform in the country.

Bieber said on Monday he would like to play in Argentina during his Purpose Tour, but "until the legal conditions change there I can't".

The singer is embroiled in a legal case in Argentina, accused of allegedly sending bodyguards to attack a photographer outside a Buenos Aires nightclub during a 2013 visit.
