Argentina set to revamp intelligence agency in wake of prosecutor’s death

The revamp of Argentina’s intelligence service faced its final legislative hurdle on Wednesday, with Congress poised to create a new agency after the government said a renegade spy was linked to the death of a star prosecutor. State investigator Alberto Nisman was found with a bullet in his head and gun by his side on Jan. 18, four days after accusing President Cristina Fernandez of trying to cover up Iran’s alleged role in the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish community center in Buenos Aires. The mysterious death shocked the country and has highlighted long-standing worries about Argentina’s intelligence services.
