Argentina suspends Astiz release
Argentine judicial authorities have suspended a decision by a court on Thursday to release one of the most notorious figures of the Dirty War.
The criminal appeals court ordered the release of Alfredo Astiz and 13 others after finding he had been held for more than two years without a conviction.
The former Naval captain, known as the"Blond Angel of Death", is accused
of the disappearance of dozens of people.
