  1. Former dictator gets put on trial

    Argentina: The country’s last dictator, five former generals and two top former police officials have gone on trial over kidnappings and murders in the notorious Campo de Mayo torture camp.

    Reynaldo Bignone faces charges connected to cases of torture, human rights violations and illegal break-ins from 1976 to 1978. He served as military president from 1982-3, the final year of the dictatorship.

    In 2003 Argentina’s courts and congress overturned an amnesty granted by Mr Bignone to members of the junta. President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner has promised the relatives of its estimated 30,000 victims that justice will be done.
