    A team of forensic scientists in Argentina is helping to bring peace to families who lost their loved ones in the so-called "Dirty War".

    That was a period in the 1970s and 80s when government death squads hunted down and killed political opponents.

    The work to identify those who disappeared is ongoing and scientists are lending the skills they developed to other conflict areas across the globe.
