People who live in the hometown of former Argentine dictator Jorge Rafael Videla aren't happy about plans to bury him there.

Videla died Friday at age 87 while serving a life term for crimes against humanity during his leadership of a junta from 1976-1983.

The Videlas have two family crypts in the cemetery in Mercedes, west of Argentina's capital, where townspeople are determined to repudiate the junta that killed more than 13,000 people. They've put up banners outside the cemetery's gates and plan a protest in the plaza Wednesday.

The town's human rights secretary Marcelo Melo says they have no power to block the burial, and doing so would be to act like Videla's dictatorship, which left families without a place to mourn loved ones who disappeared without a trace.
