[JURIST] International police organization Interpol [official website] Thursday agreed to issue [press release] arrest notices [Interpol backgrounder] for six men thought to be connected with the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires [Wikipedia backgrounder; AMIA website] that killed 85 people. Argentina [JURIST news archive] had initially sought to have a number of high ranking Iranian officials, including former Iran President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani [JURIST report; BBC profile; official website, in Farsi] arrested, but Interpol's Executive Committee [official website] approved notices for only five Iranians, including one for former Intelligence Chief Ali Fallahian [Wikipedia profile], and an additional notice for a Lebanese militant. Notices were denied for Rafsanjani, as well as Iran's former Minister of Foreign Affairs Ali Akbar Velayati and the former Ambassador of Iran in Buenos Aires, Hadi Soleimanpour.
Iran's top diplomat in Argentina told the AP of his country's intention to appeal the decision, which would postpone the planned issuance date of March 31 until Interpol's General Assembly [official website] meets in Morocco at the beginning of November. AP has more.
