Argentina's 'stolen' children

Rights campaigner reunited with grandson after 40 years but search continues for others taken during military rule.

    Grandparents in Argentina are continuing to search for their missing grandchildren who were stolen while their mothers were in captivity during the country's bitter military rule.

    In the 1970s, thousands of babies were taken by the military regime and illegally put up for adoption as their mothers were killed.

    Forty years on, Estela Carlotto, one of Argentina's most celebrated human rights campaigners, has finally been reunited with her grandson.
