New pope francis argentina videla

Former Argentine military dictator Gen. Jorge Rafael Videla takes communion from then-priest Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who was just named the new Pope, in Buenos Aires on Dec. 30, 1990. The photo was taken the day before Videla was released from prison, where he had been serving a life sentence on charges that included homicide, kidnapping and torture. Videla and seven other former military rulers were officially pardoned by then-President Carlos Menem.
