Argentine justice crusader Nisman was murdered, prosecutor says

A senior Argentinian prosecutor testified in Buenos Aires on Thursday that to the best of his knowledge, special prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who was found dead in his home in January 2015 several days before submitting an indictment against the country's president, was murdered and did not commit suicide. Prosecutor Ricardo Saenz appeared at the criminal court of appeals as a state's witness for a lawsuit by Nisman's widow for a federal investigation into her husband's death. Nisman sought to indict then President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner on suspicion of covering up the role of Iran in the bombing of the Jewish community center building in Buenos Aires in 1994. Nisman was found with a pistol wound.
