Jews demonstrate at World Cup

Dozens of Jewish demonstrators gathered for a minute of silence before the Argentina-Iran World Cup soccer game on June 21, demanding justice for a still unsolved bombing attack against a Buenos Aires Jewish center 20 years ago that left 85 dead and for which Iran has been blamed.

Demonstrators wore black T-shirts marking the event and held banners with slogans such as “20 years without justice” and “a red card for lack of justice.”

They recited the names of the victims of the bombing against the Argentine-Israeli Mutual Association, AMIA for short, and then held their heads in silence at 12:59 p.m. — exactly one minute before Argentina and Iran kicked off their match in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. — ap & jta
