Death of prosecutor shocks Argentina

The leading prosecutor in the investigation of the 1994 bombing of a Jewish Center in Buenos Aires was found dead in his apartment on Sunday. Only days before he had denounced that none other than the president of Argentina, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, was responsible for meddling in his investigation and trying to protect Irani suspects of the bombing. Alberto Nisman’s death has sparked conspiracy theories and controversy about the role of Argentina’s institutions and its foreign policy.
