Former Argentina's de facto President and Army chief Reynaldo Bignone listens to his attorney at the courtroom where he is accused of human rights crimes during the country's dictatorship, in Buenos Aires on November 4, 2009. Bignone, 81, the facto leader from 1982 to 1983, is charged with the kidnapping and torture of 56 people who were held in secret detention centers at the Campo de Mayo military base, on the outskirts of Buenos Aires during Argentina's 'dirty war' against leftists. In addition to the kidnapping and torture charges, Bignone is accused of having stolen children from some of the kidnapped detainees. Five other retired military officers also are being prosecuted during the trial, which is expected to run through early March 2010. By Juan Mabromata/AFP/Getty Images.
