Argentine Court Nixes Joint AMIA Massacre Probe with Iran


An Argentine court declared unconstitutional, Thursday, an agreement with Iran to probe the 1994 bombing of a Buenos Aires Jewish center, with a final decision left to the Supreme Court. The government vowed to appeal. It holds that Tehran was behind the attack on the Argentine Jewish Charities Federation, or AMIA, that left 85 people dead and 300 others injured two decades ago.
