Former Argentinian generals sentenced to life





wo former generals accused of murdering a senator during Argentina's military dictatorship were sentenced to life in prison Thursday.

Antonio Bussi and Luciano Menendez were found guilty of kidnapping and murdering Sen. Guillermo Vargas Aignasse, who was last seen in public March 24, 1976, the day of a military coup.

The men, both in their 80s, showed no remorse during the trial, which took place in the interior city of San Miguel de Tucuman. They argued that they were simply defending Argentina from a guerrilla movement.
