Jorge Videla and Reynaldo Bignone, Argentina's two former dictators, have gone on trial over the kidnapping of hundreds of babies born to political dissidents during military rule in the 1970s and 80s.
Videla headed Argentina's military leadership from 1976 to 1981, while Bignone ruled from 1982-1983. They are on trial with six other defendants.
While the children were adopted by families friendly to the military leadership, their parents were rarely heard from again
