The Daily Telegraph - - World news -

An Ar­gen­tine judge has or­dered the ar­rest of Cristina Fer­nan­dez de Kirch­ner, the former pres­i­dent, on charges of trea­son, ac­cus­ing her of cov­er­ing up Ira­nian in­volve­ment in the coun­try’s worst ter­ror­ist at­tack.

The 1994 bomb­ing of a Jewish cen­tre in Buenos Aires killed 85. Pre­vi­ous pros­e­cu­tor Al­berto Nis­man was found dead in 2015, the day be­fore he was due to present the find­ings of an in­ves­ti­ga­tion ac­cus­ing Mrs Kirch­ner and oth­ers of a cover-up. She was due to be sworn in as a se­na­tor on Sun­day, grant­ing her im­mu­nity.
