The US government has called for a “complete and impartial” investigation on the death of AMIA special prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who had accused President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner of covering up the 1994 bombing of the Jewish community centre.

"Judicial authorities are investigating his death and we call for a complete and impartial investigation,” US State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said to reporters.

Psaki refused to comment on Nisman’s allegations against Ms. Kirchner or to speculate on the cause of the prosecutor’s death. “There is an ongoing investigation and we will make no comments,” she said.

"The United States and the international community continue to work with the Argentine government, as well as victims of the AMIA bombing and their families, to seek justice," Psaki added.

The US official lamented Nisman’s death. She said that he "courageously devoted much of his professional life" to going after those responsible for the attack on AMIA Jewish centre in Buenos Aires.
