BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – An Argentine human rights group says DNA tests have determined the identity of another person taken as a baby from a victim of the country's dictatorship, bringing the number of such cases to 119. The man has been reunited with his mother after 38 years.
Mario Bravo called the opportunity to reunite with his birth mother "a miracle." He was presented Tuesday by the Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo.
The rights group says Bravo's mother was in captivity when she gave birth to him. She was only identified as Sara.
Former military and police figures have been convicted of organizing the theft of babies from political prisoners who were detained and then sometimes executed.
Human rights groups say about 30,000 people died or disappeared in Argentina's 1976-1983 dictatorship.
