Argentina: Prosecutor set to expose President’s complicity with Iranians in Jewish Center bombing found shot dead

A special prosecutor who had accused Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner of ordering impunity for Iranian suspects in the South American country’s worst terrorist attack was found shot dead in his bathroom, authorities said Monday.

Alberto Nisman, who was set to testify Monday in a closed-door hearing, was found in the bathroom of his Buenos Aires apartment late Sunday, federal prosecutor Viviana Fein told Telam, Argentina’s official news agency.

‘We can confirm that it was a gunshot wound, .22 caliber,’ she said, adding that it was too early in the investigation to know what had happened.
