Police: Argentina’s Alberto Nisman’s Murder Was Made to Look Like a Suicide

A new Argentine police report contradicts the official line on what happened to prosecutor Alberto Nisman—who just days before his January 2015 death accused then-President Cristina Fernandez of a coverup in the 1994 terror attack on a Jewish community center. The 51-year-old was found dead in his Buenos Aires apartment with a gunshot wound to the temple on the very morning he was set to present a report to Argentine lawmakers. According to border-police investigation documents obtained by the AP, Nisman was drugged and beaten by two men before one attacker put the .22 caliber pistol to his head and pulled the trigger. Initial findings had indicated that Nisman killed himself. But the new report raises questions about the 1994 attack by suspected Iranian agents that killed 85 people—the deadliest terror act in Argentina’s history.
