Israel, Jewish groups slam Argentina-Iran 'truth commission'

Israel and world Jewish groups denounced plans by Argentina and Iran to form a truth commission to investigate the deadly 1994 bombing of a Buenos Aires Jewish center that Argentine courts say was sponsored by Iran.

 

The forming of the commission, announced during the weekend, was seen as a diplomatic win for Iran as it confronts a US-led effort to isolate Tehran because of its nuclear program. (Reuters)
