Iran paid Argentina’s former president $10 million to cover up Tehran’s role in the 1994 bombing of a Buenos Aires Jewish community center, according to the New York Times. Citing a witness’ testimony in a leaked secret transcript, the Times reported that the payoff to Carlos Menem explains why the blast at the AMIA center, which killed 85, remains unsolved.
