Iran has backed away from an effort to stop Interpol from voting on whether to put five Iranians and a Lebanese man on the international police agency's most wanted list, an Interpol official said Monday. Iran's decision clears the way for a vote on the issue at the three-day Interpol general assembly that began Monday in Marrakech, Morocco. Delegates will be asked to adjudicate a dispute between Interpol members Iran and Argentina over the deadly 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center. Prosecutors in Argentina say they have enough evidence for Interpol's general assembly to approve "red" wanted notices for the six suspects - akin to placing them on its most wanted list. In the run-up to the meeting, Iran had sought to delay the issue until next year, said an Interpol official on condition of anonymity because of agency policy. But Teheran did not formalize such a request as the three-day meeting opened.
