20th Anniversary of Buenos Aires Embassy Bombing


There will a memorial service, Friday, in Buenos Aires, to mark the 20th anniversary of a car bombing at the Israeli embassy, which took the lives of 29 Israelis and Argentinians and wounded more than 220. Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon will address the gathering.

Hizbullah claimed it carried out the attack in response to the elimination of Secretary-General Abbas Musawi. A Mossad intelligence-agency report linked Iran to the Hizbullah effort.
