Argentina 'Dirty War' trial begins

The removal of an amnesty shielding perpetrators of 'Dirty War' leads to slow justice.

    Argentina's 'Dirty War', one of Latin America's most brutal dictatorships left thousands dead and thousands more missing.

    When the country embraced democracy more than two decades ago, it quickly moved toward prosecuting hundreds of military personnel involved in the killings.

    But the pursuit of justice ended shortly after it began. Now the courts are trying some of the most infamous suspects.

    Teresa Bo reports from the Argentine capital, Buenos Aires.
