(Bloomberg) -- An Argentine judge dismissed charges that President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner tried to cover up for the people behind the biggest terrorist attack in the country’s history, saying the evidence “clearly” contradicted some of the claims.

Prosecutor Gerardo Pollicita had accused Fernandez on Feb. 12 of seeking to remove Interpol arrest warrants against Iranian officials for the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center in exchange for trade deals. The attack led to the death of 85 people.
