Buenos Aires: Hundreds at Memorial for 1994 Bombing


Hundreds of members of Argentina's Jewish community participated, Thursday, in a memorial to the 85 who were murdered in the 1994 car-bombing of the AMIA building in Buenos Aires. Hundreds more were wounded in the attack. Many marched in the capital's Almagro neighborhood, carrying pictures of the victims and placards calling for justice.

Community leaders sharply criticized the government for its agreement to involve the Iranian government in the investigation as a way of allowing Argentinian investigators to go to Tehran and question senior government leaders suspected of involvement in the attack. The Argentinian Jewish community is afraid that the agreement will allow impunity for those suspects.
