Argentina judge orders arrest of ex-president Kirchner: source

AFP  |  Buenos Aires 

An Argentine judge today ordered the arrest of former president Cristina Kirchner for allegedly covering up Iranian involvement in a 1994 bombing at a Buenos Aires Jewish center that left 85 people dead, according to a judicial source.

The order also removes the judicial immunity of Kirchner, who served as president from 2007-2015 and is now a senator. She has previously called the case an "absurdity".
