Interpol’s Assembly Wednesday approves “red” tags for five Iranians and a Hizballah operative for 1994 bombing of Argentine Jewish center

The Interpol general assembly meeting in Marrakech, Morocco tagged all six as wanted for extradition in connection with the attack which leveled the seven-story Jewish center in Buenos Aires, killing 85 people and shocking the 200,000 strong Argentine Jewish community. Thirteen years later, there has not been a single conviction. Argentine prosecutors accuse the five Iranian officials of sending Hizballah to blow up the explosives-laden van which destroyed the center. They say they have enough evidence to issue “red” notices for their extradition. The wanted men include former Iranian intelligence chief Ali Fallahian, former Revolutionary Guards chief Mohsen Rezai and Hizballah’s military chief Imad Mughniyeh. Iran claims the charge is political and has no intention of obeying the extradition orders.
