Argentina protest demanding answers about dead prosecutor

BUENOS AIRES – Thousands of Argentines marched in Buenos Aires on Wednesday evening to demand answers in the mysterious death of prosecutor Alberto Nisman a month ago.

Carrying Argentine flags and waving signs reading “Justice!” and “Truth!”, protesters were walking from Congress to the iconic Plaza

de Mayo in downtown.

Nisman was found dead of a gunshot wound Jan. 18, hours before he was to detail to Congress his explosive accusations that President Cristina Fernandez and top administration officials orchestrated a secret deal with Iran to shield officials allegedly responsible for the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires. Fernandez has denied the allegations.
