A judge in Argentina has dismissed claims that President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner and her Foreign Minister covered up alleged involvement by Iran in the deadly bombing of a jewish centre in Buenos Aires 20 years ago. Leonardo Rocha reports.
Judge Daniel Rafecas said he was throwing out the case because no crime had occurred. And the evidence against the President and her Foreign Minister was weak. The accusation came from special prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who was found dead last month in his flat, hours before he was due to testify in congress against Ms. Fernandez and Mr. Timerman. It's not clear whether he was murdered or killed himself. President Fernandez has always rejected the allegations. She said Mr. Nisman had been fed misleading information by a rogue intelligence Agent, as part of a plot to discredit her government.

When a second bomber tried to detonate his explosives in the same bus station in Biu, he was stopped by a crowd who beat him to death.
