"Uruguay's senate voted Tuesday to revoke an amnesty law protecting scores of officials in the country's 1973-1985 dictatorship from human rights prosecutions. Backed by the governing Broad Front coalition, the vote squeaked through by a 16-15 margin and will be voted on by the Uruguay's Chamber of Deputies on Wednesday." (10/25/11)
