Former Argentine dictator Jorge Videla dies of natural causes while serving life in prison

Former Argentine dictator Jorge Rafael Videla has died of natural causes while serving life sentences in prison for crimes against humanity.

Videla took power in a 1976 coup and led a military junta that killed thousands of his fellow citizens in a dirty war to eliminate "subversives."

Federal Prison Service Director Victor Hortel said he died in Friday morning in the Marcos Paz prison.
