An Argentine court dismissed two prosecutors in the trial of police officers accused of helping bomb a Jewish community center in 1994. Announced Tuesday, just weeks before the trial is due to end, the decision could imperil the case. Three judges said prosecutors Eamon Mullen and Jose Barbaccia were not impartial because they were aware of a $400,000 bribe paid by the investigative judge on the case, Juan Jose Galeano, to car mechanic Carlos Telleldin to secure his accusation against former police officers.
