Warrant for Galtieri over 'dirty war' killings

A Spanish judge issued an international arrest warrant for the former Argentine military president Leopoldo Galtieri for his alleged role in the killing of three Spaniards during Argentina's "dirty war". Baltasar Garzon, who is investigating the disappearance of 300 Spaniards in Argentina 1976-1983, said he was asking Interpol to take Mr Galtieri into custody if he leaves his homeland. He led the ruling junta 1980-1982 and ordered the invasion of the Falklands. Reuters - Madrid
