Justice for victims of Argentina's stolen children

After years of legal wrangling, the families of Argentina's stolen children have finally seen justice done. Former dictators Jorge Videla and Reynaldo Bignone, both already serving life sentences for their roles in Argentina's "Dirty War", which left nearly 30 thousand political opponants missing or dead, were convicted for their part in abducting the children of political prisoners. The verdict only came about because of the tireless work of a group of determined grandmothers.
