Hundreds of people hold placards demanding justice for victims of a bomb attack against a Jewish centre that killed 85 people and injured 300, during the commemoration of its 20th anniversary, in Buenos Aires yesterday.

BUENOS AIRES: Pope Francis called yesterday for justice to be done in the unsolved bombing at a Jewish centre in Argentina that killed 85 people and wounded 300 others two decades ago.

“I’ve said before that Buenos Aires is a city that needs to weep, that still hasn’t cried enough,” the pope said in a recorded message played at commemorations of the anniversary.

Pope Francis served as archbishop of Buenos Aires before becoming pope and was auxiliary bishop of the city when the bomb exploded at the Argentine Jewish Charities Federation on July 18, 1994.
