Argentina Lawmakers Debate Iran Deal Over 1994 Attack

Argentine lawmakers on Wednesday appeared set to approve an agreement with Iran to set up a "truth commission" into a deadly 1994 bombing despite opposition from the Latin American country's Jewish community, AFP reported.

The Senate gave the green light for the deal last week and Agustin Rossi, the majority leader in the Chamber of Deputies, said he and fellow allies of President Cristina Kirchner had gathered enough votes to approve the deal.
