Brazil Truth Commission: Victims revisit torture cells

Nearly 30 years after the end of Brazil's military dictatorship, a national truth commission is issuing a report into human rights abuses carried out during that time.

More than 400 people were killed or disappeared during the dictatorship and there have been renewed calls for a controversial amnesty law to be repealed.

Some of the women who were tortured at the Department of Political and Social Order, have been back to the cells they were held in.
