Former Argentine dictators guilty of stealing prisoners' babies

An Argentine Court has found two former dictators guilty of systematically stealing babies from political prisoners.

Jorge Videla has been sentenced to 50 years in prison and Reynaldo Bignone to 15 years.

At least 400 babies are thought to have been taken from their parents while they were being held in detention centres during military rule from 1976 to 1983.

The BBC's Vladimir Hernandez reports from Buenos Aires.
