Argentina Demands Rafsanjani Extradition

From the Jerusalem Post:

Argentine President Cristina Fernandez demanded Tuesday that Iran extradite its former president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani for his responsibility for 1994's AMIA Jewish community center bombing in Buenos Aires that killed 85 people and wounded more than 100.

Speaking at the UN General Assembly, Fernandez also demanded the extradition of seven Iranians who planned the attack.

INTERPOL has issued extradition warrants against six of the suspects.

Wow. A bold step. If the seven were extradited or arrested, it would all but bring down the Islamic Republic. I wonder how much it has really hurt the chances for these individuals to ravel abroad, though.
