Twenty-one officials from military dictatorships that ruled Bolivia, Chile, Peru and Uruguay in the 1970s and 1980s should be tried for kidnapping and multiple murder in Italy, a judge in Rome ruled Monday.

It was not immediately possible to obtain the names of the suspects.

They have been investigated over the disappearance and presumed murder of 23 Italians during the so-called Operation Condor, which saw several South American dictatorships cooperate on the mass persecution of exiled political dissidents.

The trial was scheduled to start on February 12, 2015.
