Israel urges Argentina to carry on probe of dead prosecutor

Israel expressed great sorrow over the death of the prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who was found dead in his apartment, a handgun nearby, after accusing President Cristina Fernandez of a cover-up in the investigation into Iran’s culpability in the 1994 bombing of the Jewish community center in Buenos Aires.

A formal ruling on the cause of his death is pending.
