Jewish Bombing Prosecutor Found Dead

Jewish Bombing Prosecutor Found DeadArgentine special prosecutor Alberto Nisman was found dead in his apartment in Buenos Aires on Sunday night, the day before he was due to present to a parlimentary committee about allegations that President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner concealed Iranian involvement in the 1994 AMIA Jewish Center bombing. Nisman was found in his bathroom with a small caliber bullet wound in the head just before midnight. Early analysis suggested it was a suicide, Argentine paper Clarín reports. Nisman claimed last week that de Kirchner and Foreign Minister Hector Timerman covered up a deal to absolve Iranian officials accused of plotting the 1994 bombing that killed 84 people in exchange for oil. Authorities have not made a statement regarding the cause of death and the security ministry could not be immediately reached for comment, the Buenos Aires Herald reports.
