Videla death: The view from Buenos Aires

People in Argentina have been reacting to the death of one of its controversial former military leaders.

Jorge Rafael Videla died in prison aged 87, while serving a sentence for crimes against humanity.

Under the military junta, up to 30,000 left-wing activists were tortured and murdered.

General Videla claimed they did not have an identity, being neither dead nor alive, they had 'disappeared'.

The BBC's Ignacio de los Reyes reports from Buenos Aires.
