Argentina Pres. Charged with Bombing Cover-up; Accused of Hiding Iranian Bombing of Jewish Ctr.

Argentine President Cristina Kirchner was formally accused today (February 13, 2015) of shielding Iranian officials from prosecution over a 1994 bombing at a Buenos Aires Jewish center that killed 85 people, the Newsmax World website reports.

The prosecution move advances the case against Kirchner that was being pursued by late prosecutor Alberto Nisman before he died mysteriously on the eve of congressional hearings on his accusation.

The accusation now goes to the judge in the case, Daniel Rafecas, to decide whether to call Kirchner to make a statement.

Kirchner has been under fire since Nisman, 51, died from a gunshot wound to the head on January 18, after accusing her of covering up the involvement of high-ranking Iranian officials in the deadly bombing in exchange for oil.
