Iranian president-elect Hassan Rohani was on a special government committee that plotted the 1994 bombing of the Jewish community center AMIA in Buenos Aires, according to an indictment by Argentine government prosecutor, The Washington Free Beacon reported on Wednesday.

The Argentine government accused the Iranian government of planning the attack, that killed 85 and injured hundreds, and Lebanese terror organization Hezbollah of carrying it out. Numerous Iranian officials are wanted by the Interpol in connection with the bombing.

Former Iranian intelligence official Abolghasem Mesbahi, who defected from Iran in the 1990s, testified that Rohani, the then-secretary of the Supreme National Security Council, was a member of the special committee that approved the bombing, that was headed by Supreme Spiritual Leader Ali Khamenei.
