Damian Pachter says his life was in danger in Argentina, came to Jewish state because ‘this is the place where I feel safe’

The journalist who was first to report the gunshot death of federal prosecutor Alberto Nisman landed in Israel on Sunday, having fled from Argentina because he believed his life was in danger.

Damian Pachter, of the English-language Buenos Aires Herald, left the country Saturday, and arrived at Ben-Gurion airport on Sunday evening.

He said he was being chased by Argentinian security forces, that his phones were being tapped, and that he “had to move as fast as I could” to “leave the country right away”…

Iran is suspected of being behind the bombing in 1994, that Nisman was investigating.
