A federal judge is dismissing a prosecutor's allegations that President Cristina Fernandez tried to cover-up the alleged involvement of Iranian officials in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish center in Buenos Aires.

Judge Daniel Rafecas says the documents originally filed by the late prosecutor Alberto Nisman failed to meet standards needed to open a formal court investigation.
