Argentina

The Argentinian prosecutor investigating the 1994 bombing of the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association in Buenos Aires issued a 502-page indictment blaming Iran’s leadership for the deadly attack. The indictment also alleged that Iran conducted terrorist activities in Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile, Colombia, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago, and Suriname, and that Iranian embassies throughout South America were used as intelligence centers. Two of those accused of planning the 1994 attack, Ali Akbar Velayati, and Mohsen Rezai, who is wanted by Interpol, are candidates in the June 14 Iranian presidential election. The prosecutor asked Interpol to detain all of the defendants in the case.
