Two former prosecutors including Carlos Menem, , a former top intelligence official, former police officers, a Jewish community leader and a mechanic who owned the truck carrying the explosives were charged now in the case. Menem, now 85-year-old , was president between 1989 and 1999. Argentine authorities have long accused Iran and the militant group Hezbollah of being behind the attack.
