Buenos Aires Bombing of Israel Embassy: 20 Years Later
by News Editor
Jewish Chronicle – Argentina’s Jewish community is this weekend marking 20 years since the attack on the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires.
In 1992 a bomb destroyed the embassy complex as well as a church and local school, killing 29 people and wounding nearly 250. Two years later, 85 people died when the Buenos Aires Jewish-Argentine Mutual Association was bombed. The 1994 explosion reduced the seven-floor building to a pile of rubble.
Investigators have linked Iran to both attacks, and there are six Iranians on Interpol’s most wanted list for suspected involvement in the 1994 blast, but no arrests have been made.
