Argentina: Mural marking 25th anniversary of AMIA bombing unveiled

A mural marking the 25th anniversary of the deadliest terror attack in Argentine history was unveiled in Buenos Aires on Wednesday. The bombing of the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association (AMIA) killed 85 people on 18 July 1994. The nearby Hospital de Clinicas treated the majority of 300 injured in the coming days and weeks. To honour their service, AMIA chose to commission three murals to be... Еще painted on the outside of the building. The first mural by Mariano Antedomenico hangs over on the left wing of the building and depicts the moment right after the explosion. The central piece was painted by Martin Ron and pays homage to the medical professionals at the hospital. For the third and final mural, Mariela Ajras used the symbol of a blindfolded woman to made a plea for justice for the victims. No-one has been convicted in connection with the bombing and the case was dogged by allegations of evidence tampering and cover-ups. Argentine courts blamed Iran for the attack that destroyed the seven-storey cultural centre. Iran has always denied involvement.
