BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- Three key figures from Argentina's "Dirty War" got hefty jail terms for the systematic theft of babies from political prisoners during the 1976-1983 dictatorship, an Argentine court ruled on Thursday.
The missing children -- stolen from their parents and illegally adopted, often by military families -- are one of the most painful legacies of the crackdown on leftist dissent in which rights groups say up to 30,000 people were killed.Just over 100 of the children have discovered their true identities, but many families are still searching more than three decades later. Activists say there could be several hundred more individuals who do not know they were taken as babies from their parents.http://worldnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/07/06/12592712-wasnt-read more: just-one-or-two-children-ex-argentine-dictators-jailed-for-baby-thefts?lite
