Adoptees of Argentine media owner allow DNA tests

Two people who were adopted by the owner of an Argentine media conglomerate have agreed to DNA tests that a court ordered to determine whether they were stolen as babies during Argentina's military dictatorship.

Adoptees Marcela and Felipe Noble say they will not appeal the order to have blood samples taken and compared with relatives of people who disappeared during the dictatorship between 1976 and 1983.

They had previously refused to have their DNA compared with samples stored by authorities. The two were adopted by Grupo Clarin owner Ernestina Herrera de Noble.

Alejandro Carrio is the pair's lawyer. He says they are tired of "lies being told about them" in reference to suspicions raised about their biological parents.
