Federal judge dismisses case against Kirchner

An Argentine judge has dismissed the case filed by late prosecutor Alberto Nisman accusing the Argentine president of covering up the Iranian government’s involvement in a 1994 terrorist attack in Buenos Aires. This comes one month after Nisman was found dead in his apartment under mysterious circumstances. Tensions continue to grow for President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner after thousands of protesters flooded the streets of Buenos Aires on February 18, angry about how the case has been handled. Peter Prengaman, Southern Cone news editor for the Associated Press gives us an update on the case.
