Jorge videla death

Former Argentine dictator and general, Rafael Videla, is seen during his trial to investigate the crimes committed during Operation Condor, a campaign established by Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, Brazil, Bolivia and Uruguay's dictatorships to quash the opposition during the 1970s, in Buenos Aires on March 5, 2013. Argentina's junta, which Videla led from 1976-81, is held responsible for the disappearance of up to 30,000 people during the so-called 'Dirty War' against political opponents. Videla, Bignone and Menendez are among the 26 defendants. Jorge Rafael Videla passed away in Argentina on May 17, 2013 at the age of 87.
