Medical teams meet in Argentina to discuss Nisman's cause of death

Two medical teams are meeting in Argentina’s capital in an extraordinary session aimed at concluding whether prosecutor Alberto Nisman killed himself or was slain.

The meeting began Wednesday after months of debate about how Nisman died January 18, when he was found in his bathroom with a bullet in his head.

The lead investigator says authorities have not determined whether Nisman took his own life or was killed. However, the late prosecutor’s ex-wife hired a forensic team that determined Nisman was killed.

The meeting of medical officials aims to sort through this and other discrepancies.

Days before he died, Nisman accused President Cristina Kirchner of helping Iranian officials cover up their alleged role in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center. A federal judge has thrown out the case.
