Argentine court releases officers
An Argentine court has ordered the release from prison of 14 men accused of committing human right abuses during the country's years of military rule.
The men worked at the Naval Mechanics School, known as Esma, the largest clandestine detention centre in Buenos Aires during the"Dirty War".
The men should be freed because they have been in prison for more than two
years without trial, the court said.
