Superheroes bring cheer for kids of Argentinian prisoners

STORY: During a recent Reuters visit to the 33rd prison in Los Hornos on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, some 15 men and women transformed themselves into popular superheroes, as well as some villains, from movies such as 'Frozen' and 'Maleficent'.

Children can stay with their mothers in the women's prison until the age of four, a tough upbringing that the volunteers are hoping to brighten up.

The group played, danced around and handed out sweets and toys.
