BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - The Argentine prosecutor charged with examining allegations that President Cristina Fernandez tried to block the inquiry into a deadly 1994 bombing dismissed the case on Monday.

Federal prosecutor Javier De Luca was assigned to the case after it had already been rejected by a lower court in February.

"There has been no crime," De Luca told Reuters.

The allegations were made by late prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who was found dead in his flat with a bullet wound to the head on Jan. 18 the day before he was due to testify about them to parliament.
