Germany has issued an arrest warrant for Argentina’s former dictator General Jorge Videla on suspicion of murdering a German man.

The Nuremberg prosecutor’s office opened a probe into the junta’s former leaders, including Videla, at the end of the 1990s over the killing and disappearance of Germans during Agentina’s so-called ‘dirty war’. But the initial investigations were stopped in 2008 after an Argentine court rejected an extradition request submitted by the German government.
