SYDNEY – Australian counter-terror agents have reopened an investigation into the bombings of the Israeli Consulate and a Jewish social club in Sydney 30 years ago.

Police confirmed Saturday that members of a special strike force called “Operation Forbearance,” established to investigate the two bombings on Dec. 23, 1982, have interviewed a prime suspect in an American jail.

In the first Australian counter-terror cold case ever to be reopened, detectives traveled in May to interrogate Jordanian-born Palestinian Mohammed Rashid, local media reported.

The 65-year-old is serving a seven-year sentence at a federal prison in Indiana for the bombing of a Pan Am flight from Japan to Hawaii in August 1982, which killed one passenger and injured 15 others.
