Hezbollah man named as bomber in 1994 Buenos Aires attack

The suicide bomber who detonated a van packed with explosives outside a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires in 1994, killing 85 people in Argentina’s worst-ever terrorist attack, has been identified as a Hezbollah “militant”, a prosecutor said yesterday.

Prosecutor Alberto Nisman said in a television interview that judicial officials suspect Ibrahim Hussein Berro carried out the attack, which leveled the community center in downtown Buenos Aires and shook the country’s more than 200,000-strong Jewish community.
