Iranian Suspects to be Questioned by Argentine Judge

Iran denied on Tuesday that Iranians facing international arrest warrants for their alleged roles in the 1994 bombing of a Buenos Aires Jewish centre will be questioned by an Argentine judge.

"The matter of questioning of some of the Iranian officials is a sheer lie," Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said at his weekly press conference, after Argentina's foreign minister had indicated the opposite AFP reported.

"It seems that those who are concerned by the actual agreement are spreading such reports," Mehmanparast said.

Argentine Foreign Minister Hector Timerman said seven Iranians with international arrest warrants against them will be questioned by an Argentine judge in Tehran concerning the bombing.
