Iran has summoned five Argentine nationals to appear in court over accusations by Teheran that they orchestrated a scenario to implicate Iran in the 1994 terrorist bombing of a Jewish community center in Argentina, state IRNA news agency said.
The five include a former Argentine interior minister, a judge, a prosecutor, the head of the Jewish Community Center and a fifth man who IRNA said have been "notified by the Argentine justice system to attend" a hearing in Teheran to "hear the charges against them."
The report cited Iranian Deputy Prosecutor General, Yadollah Alizadeh, as saying the five are charged with making a case against Iran and hiring individuals of "anti-government affiliations" to testify against Iran.
