Hizbullah Killed Israeli Tourists in Black Sea Resort, Says Bulgaria
Bulgaria accused Lebanese militant movement Hizbullah yesterday of carrying out a bomb attack on a bus in the Black Sea city of Burgas that killed five Israeli tourists last year.
The conclusions of the Bulgarian investigation, citing a clear connection to an attack on European Union soil, might open the way for the EU to join the United States in branding the Iranian-backed Hizbullah a terrorist organisation.
Three people were involved in the attack, two of whom had genuine passports from Australia and Canada, Bulgarian interior minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov said after Sofia’s national security council discussed the investigation.
“There is data showing the financing and connection between Hizbullah and the two suspects,” Mr Tsvetanov said.
