Argentinean pres. urges Iran to cooperate in investigation of '94 attack


Argentina's President Mauricio Macri urged Iran to cooperate in investigating the AMIA Jewish Center terror attack that took place in Buenos Aires in 1994, which killed 85 people and injured hundreds others.

Alberto Nisman, former Argentinian prosecutor, held Iran responsible for the suicide bombing reportedly carried out by a Hezbollah member.

The horrible attack came two years after the bombing of the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires, which took place in March 1992, killing 29 people and wounding dozens others.

The Islamic Jihad Organization claimed responsibility for that bombing. According to former CIA case officer Robert Baer, this organization operates under the umbrella of Iran's Hezbollah.
