Jorge Videla, the former president of Argentina, has been sentenced to 50 years for systematically stealing the babies of prisoners. Thursday's verdict finds Videla, 86, guilty of kidnapping hundreds of babies from leftist activists detained and killed between 1976-1983. "We have presented evidence showing that the kidnappers plotted to steal the children born to women in captivity," Estela de Carlotto, president of the Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo, told the AFP news agency. The rights group has fought in court since 1996, demanding restitution for the children stolen while their mothers were held in clandestine detention.
