    The AMIA labyrinth

      By Horacio Lutzky  / For the Herald

    23 years on from Argentina’s worst-ever terrorist attack, a web of cover-ups, espionage and deception continues to cast a long shadow over efforts to bring the truth to light

    At 9.53am on July 18, 1994, some 23 years ago, a tremendous explosion (or two, according to many witnesses) demolished the building of the AMIA Jewish Community Centre in the city of Buenos Aires, causing 85 deaths.

    El laberinto AMIA

      By Horacio Lutzky  / For the Herald

    El 18 de julio de 1994, a las 9:53, una tremenda explosión (o dos, según declararon numerosos testigos) demolió el edificio de la mutual judía AMIA en la ciudad de Buenos Aires, causando 85 muertos. El expediente de la investigación se inicia con una crónica del comisario de la Policía Federal Carlos Castañeda. Se trata de un jefe policial que años más tarde será procesado y condenado por destrucción de pruebas, y que actualmente está siendo sometido a juicio oral en otro proceso, también por encubrimiento del atentado, como buena parte de los primeros responsables de la investigación.

      By Tomás Brockenshire  / Herald Staff

    If all goes according to plan, on New Year’s Day 2019 scientists will get their best look yet at the most-distant object ever explored by a spacecraft — and part of that historic moment will be down to the five NASA telescopes stationed in Chubut that saw a star blink ever so slightly this week.
