VIENNA (Reuters) - Austrian prosecutors have launched an investigation into whether Iran's president-elect was involved in the 1989 assassination of a Kurdish leader in Vienna, the Interior Ministry said on Tuesday.
A ministry spokesman confirmed that prosecutors had started a probe by asking the ministry's anti-terrorism task force to investigate the case, but declined to provide any details.
"The prosecutor's office has made the request," ministry spokesman Rudolf Gollia said.
The state prosecutor's office also confirmed that it was reopening the unsolved murder case.
Austrian Green Party security spokesman Peter Pilz told a news conference there was "credible evidence" that Iranian President-elect Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was involved in the 1989 assassination of Iranian exile Kurdish opposition leader Abdul Rahman Ghassemlou and two other Kurdish politicians in Vienna.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
