Argentina on Friday lashed out at a US Republican senator who expressed doubts about the government's ability to conduct a credible investigation into the mysterious death of a prominent local prosecutor.

Cabinet chief Jorge Capitanich accused Florida Senator Marco Rubio of "imperialist behavior" and warned him against "unwarranted meddling" in a case that has outraged many Argentines and put heavy pressure on President Cristina Fernandez to determine what happened.

Alberto Nisman, who was investigating a 1994 bombing that killed 85 people at a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, was found on Jan. 18 sprawled on his bathroom floor in a pool of blood, a single bullet to his head.

While preliminary autopsy results suggested he killed himself, many Argentines remain skeptical. Fernandez has suggested she believes Nisman was killed by rogue spies but has not offered further details.

Days before his death, Nisman claimed Fernandez tried to whitewash his investigation and said he had further evidence to present to Congress.
