DNA helps resolve crimes of Argentina’s Dirty War

BUENOS AIRES, Aug 26 (Reuters) – Small red coffins are stacked inside a bleak office just blocks from Argentina’s Congress, a chilling reminder of the thousands of people kidnapped and killed during the bloody 1976-1983 dictatorship.

Inside the boxes are the bones of recently identified victims of the so-called Dirty War, waiting to be picked up by relatives for a proper burial three decades after they were murdered by their own government.
