Uruguay: Iranian diplomat expelled in Jan. after bomb exploded near Israeli embassy

[Ed. – Getting insane out there.  Uruguay, for crying out loud.]

An Iranian diplomat was expelled from Uruguay two weeks ago after a bomb detonated near the Israeli embassy there, according to a report published in Ha’aretz today.

Investigations carried out by Uruguay’s intelligence services after the discovery of the device yielded information pointing to a possible involvement of someone at the Iranian embassy. The Uruguayan government turned to Iran’s government for information and after consultations between the two, it was decided to expel one of the senior diplomats at Iran’s embassy.

A senior official in Jerusalem said Uruguay subsequently updated Israel regarding the incident. However, it decided to keep a low profile concerning the affair and did not publicize the diplomat’s expulsion.

In early January, the bomb according to the report “partly detonated” not far from a building in which the Israeli embassy is located.

Alberto Nisman, an Argentinian prosecutor, who has documented Iran’s extensive terror ties in South America, was found dead under suspicious circumstances nearly three weeks ago as he was preparing to present evidence that Argentina’s President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner was conspired with Iran to cover up Iran’s role in the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish center in Buenos Aires.
