New Zealand Dismisses Link between Mossad and Earthquake Victim


New Zealand’s Prime Minister broke a short silence Wednesday and dismissed a media report linking the Mossad with Ofer Mizrachi, an Israeli victim of an earthquake in Christchurch last February.

The Southland Times still insists its original report is accurate and that intelligence officials are auditing police computers because of suspicion that Israeli forensic scientists embedded malicious software to obtain security information after the earthquake.
