Argentine accused of fathering 10 children with own daughter
A 62-year-old man was arrested and charged with raping his daughter for more than 30 years and fathering 10 children with her, in a case "even worse" than that of Austria's Josef Fritzl in 2008, a judge said on Wednesday.

"The accused denied the allegations but DNA tests have confirmed paternity," Judge Virgilio Palud told local radio.
The man has been charged with repeated sexual abuse and incest, crimes which carry a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, he added.
The man, whose identity was not disclosed, was arrested in June for alleged cattle rustling, prompting his daughter, now aged 43, to report him to the police despite his threats of harm if she talked. The case was first reported on Wednesday.

The daughter, whose identity was also not released, claims to have been beaten and raped since the age of 13 at the family's home in the village of Nicanor Molinas, 600 kilometres (375 miles) north of Buenos Aires.
She said the incestuous rapes resulted in 10 children, now ages seven to 27, and that only the eldest knows their father and grandfather are one and the same, Judge Palud said.
"It's even worse than what happened in Austria," he added, referring to the horrific crimes of Josef Fritzl, sentenced to life in 2009 for having kept his daughter imprisoned for 24 years, fathering seven children with her and killing one of them.
In the Argentine case, one of the 10 children born of the rapes has already died.
Judge Palud said another daughter of the suspect also claims to have been raped repeatedly by her father and to have had an abortion before she fled her home in the farming community of Santa Fe province.
The case is the third such shocking father-daughter abuse to emerge in Argentina recently.
Last year, the case of the "Monster of Mendoza" gripped Argentina, when a 67-year-old man was accused of raping and fathering seven children with one of his three daughters.
And last month, a 60-year old man in central Cordoba province was charged with having raped his daughter over a period of 20 years and fathered six children with her, including a girl – his own granddaughter – whom he was also raping.
The latest rape and incest case "is remarkable for the amount of violence and the length of time it lasted," but "in Reconquista (near Nicanor Molinas) and northern Santa Fe, sexual abuse within families is commonplace," said Judge Palud.
He said in Vera, another city in Santa Fe, "they had to build a special prison wing to house sexual offenders."
It must be difficult for promoters of the Hollie Greig 'STORIES' to come to terms with the inescapable fact that sexual abuse of children is not all organised by the state, the authorities and convenient cover-up fantasies - there are a huge number of GENUINE cases of sexual abuse with evidence, validity and admissible proof!
'Open the curtains, throw open the windows and permit the light of investigation and fresh air into family courts and sexual, emotional and physical abuse of the vulnerable - expose the abuse & the abuse of authority of those acting in OUR name! No child asked to be or enjoys abuse, it is for the gratification of the inadequate'.
