Recently declassified US intelligence documents have revealed brutal methods employed by Argentina's former military junta during its 1976-1983 "dirty war" against dissidents.

The archive shows that on August 20 1976, agents of Argentina's dictatorship dynamited the bodies of 30 people who had been detained as dissidents in a blast that spread their remains over a wide radius.
