Argentina is seeking the arrest of Iranian minister Ahmad Vahidi.

Earlier this month, an Argentinian court officially declared Iran to be responsible for a 1994 bombing at the AMIA Jewish community center in Buenos Aires which killed 85 people, as well as for a 1992 bombing at the Israeli Embassy, which left 29 dead.

Vahidi is currently visiting Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Both of those governments have been asked to arrest him, and Interpol has issued a red alert allowing his detention.

In the April 12 decision, an Argentine court declared that Iran was responsible for the attack and called the Islamic Republic a "terror state." The judges ruled that Iran ordered the attack in 1992 on the Israeli embassy and the attack on the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association (AMIA) Jewish center in Argentina in 1994.

The court called the AMIA attack a "crime against humanity."

One of the judges, Carlos Mahiques, told Radio Con Vos, "Hezbollah carried out an operation that responded to a political, ideological and revolutionary design under the mandate of a government, of a State."
