Argentinian president accused of covering up details about the country's worst terrorist attack per The Guardian

The Guardian reports that:
'An Argentinian federal prosecutor has accused the country's president, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, of attempting to cover up Iran's involvement in the bombing of a Jewish community centre in 1994, in which 85 people were killed.

Prosecutor Alberto Nisman said on Wednesday that he had issued a request that judge Ariel Lijo interrogate Fernández and the foreign minister, Héctor Timerman, "for being authors and accomplices of an aggravated cover-up and obstruction of justice regarding the Iranians accused of the Amia terrorist attack".

In a 300-page presentation to a Buenos Aires court, Nisman alleged that the president conducted secret negotiations with Iran through non-diplomatic channels in 2013, and offered to cover up the involvement of Iranian officials in return for oil to ease Argentina's chronic energy deficit. Under the deal, the oil would be exchanged for Argentinian grain, Nisma said.'
