Interpol head, Argentina’s prosecutor meet


BUENOS AIRES (JTA) — The head of Interpol met with Argentine officials to reconfirm their commitment to recapture the Iranian terrorists accused of bombing a Buenos Aires Jewish center.

Interpol’s general secretary, Ronald Noble, met in Lyon, France with the Argentine case prosecutor, Alberto Nisman, Argentine Foreign Ministry officials, and representatives from the political umbrella group of Argentine Jewry, the DAIA, on Monday. They discussed intensified efforts to capture the Iranians whose arrest warrants were issued in November 2007.

Eighty-five people were killed and hundreds wounded when the Buenos Aires AMIA Jewish Center was bombed in 1994. The bombing was allegedly carried out by Hezbollah agents with Iranian sponsorship and organization. Five Iranians have been on the international police agency’s most wanted list since 2007 in connection with the bombing.
