Iranian Wanted Over Argentina Bomb Arrested in UK

British police said on Thursday they had arrested a former Iranian ambassador to Argentina, wanted in connection with a 1994 bombing of a Buenos Aires Jewish center which killed 85 people. They said in a statement that Hadi Soleimanpour, ambassador at the time of the attack on the AMIA Jewish Community Center, would appear before magistrates in London on Friday. Police said they arrested Soleimanpour on an extradition warrant alleging that “on or before July 7, 1994, (he) did conspire with other persons to murder persons at the (AMAI Center).” Earlier this month, a judge in Argentina ordered the arrest of Soleimanpour, 47, and seven other Iranian officials implicated in the car bomb attack in which around 200 people were injured.
