Argentina passes bill to revamp spy agency after prosecutor's death

BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Argentine lawmakers passed a bill on Thursday to revamp the country's intelligence service, parts of which President Cristina Fernandez has portrayed as sinister, accountable to no one and possibly responsible for the death of a star prosecutor.

Fernandez's leftist government submitted the bill after state investigator Alberto Nisman was found dead on Jan. 18, a few days after he accused Fernandez of trying to cover up Iran's alleged role in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center. She rejected the accusation as "absurd".
