Switzerland will probe allegations that Argentina’s former president covered up Iran’s role in the bombing of a Jewish center in Buenos Aires. Swiss officials said last Friday they will investigate claims that former Argentine President Carlos Menem took a $10 million bribe to conceal Iran’s alleged links to the car bomb attack that killed 85 people at the AMIA building in July 1994. Menem denies the allegations.
