Second Dirty War witness missing

A man who testified he was tortured by Argentina's military junta has become the second witness in the "Dirty War" trials to go missing in recent months.

Police are searching for Luis Gerez, a 50-year-old construction worker, who has not been seen since Wednesday.

He had implicated a former police chief in the human rights abuses committed by the 1976-83 military regime, helping block his bid for a seat in Congress.

Another witness who testified against Dirty War suspects remains missing.

Julio Lopez vanished in September, after giving evidence at the trial of a former police chief accused of human rights abuses during military rule in the 1970s and 80s.
