Protesters gathered in Buenos Aires on Wednesday to demand justice in Argentina after the mysterious death of a prosecutor who accused the country's president of trying to derail the investigation into a 1994 bombing.

State prosecutor Alberto Nisman, the lead investigator into the 1994 car bomb attack that killed 85 people at a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, was found dead in his apartment late on Sunday (January 18), hours before he was scheduled to present his case to Congress.

A 22-calibre pistol was found at his side and Nisman appears to have committed suicide, but many of the details of the case are unclear and allegations of foul play have surged. He died just a few days after accusing President Cristina Fernandez of trying to hamper his probe.
