Buenos Aires - Argentina is bracing for a new bomb attack this weekend after foreign intelligence services warned it to expect a repeat of the blast that killed nearly 100 people last month. Guards at potential targets have been reinforced and emergency rooms at Buenos Aires hospitals placed on red alert. A man who had been described as an Iranian carrying a forged French passport was arrested as he tried to leave for Uruguay shortly before the announcement of the new bomb threat, but was released after a day in custody.
