      Ex-Iranian president declared fugitive by Argentinean judge
      02/12/2006
      By The Associated press
      http://haaretz.com/hasen/spages/795345.html


      A court on Friday declared former Iranian President Hashemi Rafsanjani
      and eight others fugitives from justice in Argentina, where they are
      wanted in connection with the 1994 bombing of a Jewish cultural center.

      Judge Rodolfo Canicoba Corral said the nine must be considered
      fugitives for failing to respond to arrest warrants he issued earlier
      this month, when he said he had "serious" evidence of the suspects'
      involvement in the attack.

      Some 85 people were killed and more than 200 were injured 12 years ago
      when a bomb exploded in a van outside the seven-story AMIA center in
      the capital of Buenos Aires.

      Iran has denied any involvement and has said it does not recognize
      that which mediates between the parliament and ruling clerics. The
      other eight named in the warrants include a former Iranian government
      and military officials and an ex-security chief for Hezbollah.
