A federal judge in Argentina said Thursday he was seeking the "international capture" of former Iranian President Hashemi Rafsanjani and eight others in connection with the 1994 bombing of a Jewish cultural center that killed 85 people. A special prosecutor sought the order, alleging that the worst terrorist attack ever on Argentine soil was orchestrated by leaders of the Iranian government and entrusted to the Lebanon-based Hizbullah. Speaking with The Associated Press and a group of local journalists at his offices in the Argentine capital, Judge Rodolfo Canicoba Corral added that he was seeking the help of Interpol in his effort. Although he did not specify whether he had already issued arrest warrants, he said he also was issuing an "international exhortation" to Iran to comply with his request, adding he had received "serious" evidence warranting detentions of the nine.
